Cotoneaster are deciduous or evergreen shrubs which work equally as well as ground cover or planted in a border. They have small, oval leaves and saucer shaped flowers which are white to pink in colour. The flowers are followed by an abundance of beautiful, ornamental berries. Cotoneaster are very easy to maintain and thrive in moderately fertile, well-drained soils in sun or partial shade. Cotoneaster can be cut back after flowering if required.
