Medium sized, dome-shaped evergreen. Glossy, leathery, dark green leaves, bronze tinged when young. Rose-pink flowers in late spring, later followed by bluish-black berries.

Best in moist, well drained soil in sun or part shade and a warm position with protection from cold winds. Dislikes cold damp conditions in winter. Quite drought tolerant and thrives well in mild coastal locations.

other notes:
There is some confusion because separately listed varieties are sold as Rhaphiolepis indica 'Springtime' and Rhaphiolepis x delacourii 'Spring Time' or 'Springtime'. We are not sure if these are actually refering to the same cultivar?
