The Cotoneaster Rockspray, 'Cotoneaster horizontalis', is a deciduous shrub that is best grown in moist, loamy, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Good drainage is essential. The Rockspray is a tough and adaptable plant that can withstand considerable drought once established. The Rockspray is a prostrate horizontally spreading plant. The tiers of horizontal branches arrange themselves in a fishbone pattern. This plant produces small pink flowers in early summer and bright red berries in late summer and fall. Rockspray cotoneaster is a valuable landscape plant which offers good foliage, flowers and fruit, and provides shelter for small birds. They may be massed as a woody ground cover for sunny areas and used for soil erosion control on banks or steep slopes.

spreading Review by Eve
I like this plant more than a juniper because it does flower and fruit some.
merits Review by RainbowRider
This plant seems to cover a broad spectrum of assets, especially here as a ground cover. Being adaptable is also a plus. The colorful flowers and berrys that follow and providing cover for birds is certainly something to take in consideration while landscaping and controlling erosion. Looks like a "winner".
