Similar to Snow Cap Indian Hawthorne, Eleanor Taber Indian Hawthorne has a dense, naturally mounding form with deep green waxy leaves, and is adorned with pink flowers mid-winter through spring, and again in the fall. Eleanor Taber is more suited to smaller, tighter sunny spaces, or planted in that awkward space between the street and sidewalk, as this Indian Hawthorne reaches only around two feet in mature height. Low maintenance and leaf spot resistance add to this shrub's appeal.

Joseph's Take

We currently have three Indian Hawthorne, Elenor Taber is the pink bloomer. Oriental Pearl and Snow Cap are white but Snow Cap's leaves turn red in winter and it can handle colder weather. I like Snow Cap the best but have been known to use Elenor Taber if Im looking for pink.
