Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, prune annually after flowering.
HISTORY
Lore Entomosporium leaf spot fungus has plagued Indian Hawthorn in the southern United States. Dr. Will Corley's efforts to breed fungus resistant varieties at the University of Georgia has yielded 'Georgia Petite'. It is derived from R. delacourii, itself a hybrid of R. indica and R. umbellata bred decades ago by M. Delacour at Cannes, France.
