Plant Profile - Raphiolepis indica ORIENTAL PEARL PBR

If you are looking for a hardy exotic shrub which is evergreen and ideal for low maintenance drought conditions it is hard to look past Raphiolepis Oriental Pearl.

Oriental Pearl is a small, rounded extremely bushy shrub which will grow anywhere. It needs no pruning and it flowers proliferously with masses of white flowers covering the entire plant. Oriental Pearl is great for use in both commercial and private applications; it will grow to a maximum height of approximately 1m x 1m.

Oriental Pearl is excellent for coastal or poolside plantings due to its relatively high salt tolerance. It is also great for formal and informal hedging, low dividers, mass plantings, pots, planter boxes and it can be successfully pruned into a lovely standard plant.

Commonly known as the Indian Hawthorn there are many cultivars on the market but many of them are susceptible and can be decimated by leaf spot which can infect the foliage causing the leaf to drop.

The beauty of Oriental Pearl is that it has resistance to leaf spot and is not affected by this disease, keeping beautiful foliage all year round; this is a huge advantage for this cultivar. Oriental Pearl is a completely sterile variety, it has never once set seed, which excludes it from potentially becoming a weed and spreading into unwanted places such as native bushland.
