Cotoneaster multiflorus calocarpus
Cotoneaster, Multi-flowered 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.
This spreading plant has the showiest flower clusters of any Cotoneaster. Large leaves and pinkish-red fruit also grace its arching or pendulous branches. Plant where it has plenty of room to grow.
