Deciduous, Shrubs, Decorative fruit or berries
Native to China, Himalayas, northern India. Plants range from low types used as ground covers 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.Cotoneaster divaricatus
Stiff growth to 6 ft. tall and wide. Dark green leaves, closely set on branches, turn orange red in fall. Egg-shaped, bright red fruits are 1/2 in. long. Use this as an informal hedge, screen, or bank planting.
