Rhaphiolepis umbellata 'Minor' (Dwarf Yeddo Hawthorn) - A slow growing, compact upright broadleaf evergreen well-branched shrub that grows to 4-7 feet tall by 3-4 feet wide with branches densely covered with 1 inch long leaves that are glossy dark green above and clustered at the end of branches with the coppery-red new growth. Tight clusters of lightly-fragrant white flowers bloom in late spring. Plant is full sun to light shade and irrigate occasionally to little (along coast). Hardy to 10-15° F and plantable in USDA Zones 8 and above - marginal in Zone 7. Drought tolerant. A great shrub for a foundation planting or low hedge and though long been marketed as only growing 2 to 3 feet tall, a 20 year old plant in part sun growing in our nursery garden is now approaching 7 feet tall by 4 feet wide.
