If planting your Indian hawthorne in a container, make sure it has adequate drainage holes by selecting a high-quality, well-draining potting mix with adequate drainage holes. Potting mixes can often be found at garden centers; or create your own using equal parts of sphagnum peat moss and vermiculite. Should the Indian hawthorne outgrow its container during spring repotting.
Entomosporium leaf spot, spread through overhead watering, is a fungal disease which threatens this shrub and can kill it if left unchecked. It initially appears as small circular spots on both upper and lower leaf surfaces before merging together into irregular blotches that spread.
