Cotoneaster - Cranberry
The Cotoneaster Cranberry, 'Cotoneaster apiculatus', is a deciduous shrub that is easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun.
It has a wide tolerance of soil types. The branches may root where they touch the ground. This dense shrub displays stiffly arching branches.
The small pink flowers appear in late spring and they will produce red cranberry-like berries in late summer. The autumn leaf color is very attractive with shades of purple, red and bronze.
Use this plant to cover large areas, as a foundation plant, a low informal hedge or for erosion control on steep banks.
The Cranberry Cotoneaster adds nice winter interest with the bright red berries hanging on the arching branches.
