Quick Overview:

Growing 4 feet high and 5 feet wide, Spring Sonata™ blooms 2 to 3 weeks later than other Indian hawthornes, extending the bloom season. In fall and winter, dark purple fruit cover the plant, adding welcome color. Use it in foundation plantings, mixed borders, or containers. It’s also a great choice for the beach, because it tolerates salt spray

Description

Winter hardy to USDA Zones 8-10 where it is easily grown in moist, well-drained soils in full sun. Best flowering and best resistance to leaf spot disease occur in locations with full sun. Tolerates light shade. Established plants tolerate some drought, but prefer regular moisture. Avoid wetting the leaves when watering this shrub because of its susceptibility to leaf spot. If needed, prune after flowering.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
