Cotoneaster

Cotoneaster

Cotoneasters are some of the most versatile shrubs in the garden -- you can choose from compact, upright shrubs to groundcovers to big plants ideal for hedges. Most deliver bountiful red berries in autumn that persist into the winter. These fruits deliver cheer in a winter-drab landscape and attract birds for more winter interest.

Most cotoneasters do best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil. Some tolerate drought well; others do fine even in shade.
