I have a 2 feet long White Indian Hawthorn and pretty soon its getting ready to flower. I believe next month. What do yall add so your Indian hawthorne can bloom with flowers? Also does it take full sun or shade for flowering? ZONE 8B.

HI! I checked my reference book for you...here's the gist of the info:
Grow in soil-based potting soil in full light. In the growing season, water moderately and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly. To propagate, Root semi-ripe cuttings in late summer. As for pruning, trim lightly to maintain shape; deadhead unless fruit is desired; Prune out deadwood in late spring.
Hope this is helpful; sounds like a beautiful and unusual plant!

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intent of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming,

Oops, forgot to give you the technical name for your plant! It's Rhaphiolepis indica. Also, the info I gave you was meant for treatment as a houseplant...if you're growing it outdoors, let me know and I'll add that info. I wasn't sure. [dunno]
