Indian Hawthorn

Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepsis indica) is an evergreen shrub with pretty pink blooms. I’ve heard that the fruit is edible when cooked, and can be used to make jam but I have not tried it myself. The blooms appear to fade so some of them look white against the fresher deeper pink blooms.
