Cranberry Cotoneaster

Cranberry Cotoneaster
Cotoneaster apiculatus

Cotoneasters are shrubs that come in several forms. Some are upright, others weep over and still others make good ground covers. In some areas Cotoneasters are known as Bearberries. Berries are formed on individual plants. They self pollinate, so a male and female plant are not needed. The small shiny green leaves are evergreen in winter, but may suffer a little damage during a very cold, windy winter.

If you like the look of hollies, the shiny leaves and red berries, Cotoneasters may fit the bill. A single plant in the landscape can be loaded with round berries. Hollies require a male pollinator for several females in order for them to have berries. Ground cover varieties like Coral Beauty can cover a large area like a hillside in just a couple of years. The shiny leaves on the sprawling branches covered with small white flowers in the spring will provide a look that is hard to duplicate. The round berries are green in the summer and then turn red and usually last on into winter.
