The Snow Maiden or Rhaphiolepis Indica, also known as Indian Hawthorn,  is a highly popular evergreen flowering shrub. It produces clusters of small, bell-shaped, white flowers in early spring. The foliage often emerges as a deep red or bronze color, turning to dark green as it matures. It’s a popular ornamental plant in gardens due to its attractive foliage and early spring blooms. Regular pruning after flowering can help maintain the desired shape and size for both borders and hedges. Additionally, ensuring they have well-draining soil and the right amount of sunlight is crucial for their optimal growth and health in these landscape features.
