Cotoneaster genus. These are deciduous, semi-evergreen or evergreen shrubs and trees. Most have good autumn colour. They have a dense spreading habit and will produce red-berries. Watch out for fireblight which is a common problem.
Deciduous, Semi-evergreens or Evergreens, Shrubs or Trees
Europe, Asia and North Africa
Grown for their foliage, flowers and fruits, specimen plants, hedging or ground cover. Suitable for coastal conditions.
They are fully to frost hardy and will prefer full sun, but the evergreens will do well in either sun or semi-shade.
You can propagate the species by cuttings in the summer or by seeds in the autumn. Hybrids and cultivars are propagated by cuttings only in the summer.
Fireblight, woolly aphids, caterpillars and webber can cause problems.
