The Cotoneaster is a lovely arching plant that makes an attractive addition to any garden. It has semi-evergreen leaves that are long, pointed, neatly veined and glazed with a mid to dark green colour. Semi-evergreen means that the leaves will fall only in the harshest of winters, so you can expect the tree to retain most of its green leaves throughout the year.
The key attraction of the Cotoneaster are the beautiful bright red berries that adorn the branches in autumn. The berries remain on the plant for an extended time, creating a long lasting and eye-catching display. In June and July, the tree bears masses of white fluffy corymbs of flowers that are extremely attractive to butterflies and bees due to their strong, floral scent. Birds are also attracted as they enjoy eating the berries.
This small ornamental tree is fully hardy and will thrive in full sun or partial shade. It prefers well drained, moderately fertile soil. The tree does require heavy or regular pruning but can be pruned to remove wayward branches or reduce the size of the plant if needed.
This lovely, arching tree offers all year round interest. It looks fabulous arching over a path, where you can walk underneath it. It is also perfect to arch over a patio, a courtyard or a gazebo to provide summer shade. The Cotoneaster can be used very effectively in small gardens for screening purposes. This lovely tree holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
