Year Round Appeal on a Versatile Shrub

Cranberry Cotoneaster, Cotoneaster apiculatus, is a deciduous shrub with year round ornamental features. Plant one as a foundation plant in your yard, or several for decorative erosion control on a slope or hill in your landscape.

Your Cranberry Cotoneaster shrub has a lot to offer with year round features that prove it has something for every season. Late spring brings petite, pink-hued flowers that seem to dance amid the branches and slowly transition to cranberry-like berries for late summer.

The small, scarlet jewels will persist amid the branches well into winter to the delight of your feathered friends. Cranberry Cotoneaster's ovate leaves remain a glossy green throughout summer, then put on a show in autumn with shades of bronze, purple and red.

Cranberry Cotoneaster has an upright, mounded nature and arching habit. In fact, the branches sometimes arch so far as to touch the ground and take root. Cranberry Cotoneaster shrubs are adaptable to a variety of conditions, hardy and generally easy to care for.

If you're looking for something that has particular winter interest, but is also lovely year round, then look no further. Cranberry Cotoneaster's unique form and bright, red berries will make it a standout in your winter landscape.

Its arching form, spring flowers and colorful foliage make it ideal for your yard spring through fall. Whatever the season, you can't go wrong with this colorful and versatile shrub!

  • Year round interest
  • Adaptable to a variety of conditions
  • Great for erosion control
