Cotoneaster apiculatus

Cranberry Cotoneaster

This fast-growing group of evergreen-to-deciduous shrubs and ground covers features showy fruits that attract birds. Most are low-maintenance shrubs, requiring meager amounts of water and only occasional pruning to control shape and size. Plant in full fun, except in desert climates, where they need shade during the hottest time of day. Watch for fireblight. They do not transplant easily.

Particularly effective on banks and along walls where its branches can trail downward. Its glossy dark green leaves turn reddish-purple in the fall.
