My Indian Hawthorne does not bloom! I have them in the morning sun and they are over 8 years old. I live in Yorktown, VA - the plants are very healthy but just will not bloom. I had a landscaper buy them for me and I planted them. I will try giving them plant food.
I would suspect an issue with to much Nitrogen. This will cause lots of green but little to no flowering.
You can add Phosphorous in the form of Bone Meal to adjust this.
You may want to have a soil test done to take the guess work out of it.

I have some that grow in tight mounds and some that are loose and straggly and need pruning.
Yes, there are numerous cultivators of Indian Hawthorn. Sizes can vary from 2 feet heights to 5 feet tall.

We recently moved into a rental house with Indian hawthorn shrubs lining the walkway to the front door. The area is a mix of sun and shade. They are small (less than 2 feet high) and scraggly looking - more stems are visible than leaves. It is October in Houston and I am not sure whether pruning would do any good. Am tempted to pull then up and put down azaleas.
Indian Hawthorn rarely need pruning so the condition of the plants may be due to not enough sun, soil conditions, watering and lack of nutrients.
Here are some links to refresh you on the care requirements.
You may want to do a clean up prune on the plants and wait to see how they look in the spring.
Otherwise a new planting may be just what you need for your new home!
I have planted Indian hawthorn in front of the house. It's been 2 years but no flowers. What should I do so the flower can grow out?
Indian Hawthorn need a full sun location.
Make sure you are not over fertilizing. To much nitrogen will inhibit flowering.
Do not prune, as the buds form on old wood.
You can add an application of phosphorous to try to encourage blooming.
Bone Meal is a great organic source of phosphorous.

I have Indian Hawthorn planted along sides of my front walkway. It is about 4 years old and about 4' tall and about 3' wide. Can I cut it back to about 2' tall, now?

I live in Foster City, CA. This plant grows well here.

Deer ate 60-80% of the leaves over the winter. Will it regenerate or am I better off replacing it now?
The damage does sound extensive, but I certainly would wait to see how the plant or if it can recover.
Prune away any obvious dead or damaged branches and give the tree a light all purpose fertilizer application.
Wait and see.
