Evergreen, Ground covers, Shrubs, Decorative fruit or berries
Native to China, the Himalayas, and northern India. Plants range from low types used as groundcovers to small, stiffly upright shrubs to tall (25-ft.) shrubs of fountainlike growth with graceful, arching branches. White or pinkish springtime flowers resembling tiny single roses are pretty because of their abundance, though not especially showy. Berries (typically red or orange red) follow the blossoms in fall and winter.
All cotoneasters grow vigorously and thrive with little or no maintenance. In fact, they look better and produce better crops of berries if planted on dry slopes (where they can reduce erosion) or in poor soil rather than in rich, moist garden soil.
Evergreen. Fast, prostrate growth to 8 in. high and 10 ft. wide. Branches root along the ground. Leaves are bright glossy green and fruit is bright red. All are good groundcovers in sun or partial shade and can drape over walls or cascade down slopes.
