Cotoneasters are valued for their variety of colour and texture all year round in the border and shrubbery. They make good backdrops for flowering plants during the summer, and then become a major feature in autumn when their berries develop. This is a vigorous and spreading variety with arching or prostrate stems that make efficient and attractive ground cover among other taller shrubs, and can also be trained flat against a wall. It produces small, white flowers in late spring or early summer which are followed by masses of red berries appearing in the autumn. It is good for exposed situations and will cope with any aspect and any soil type. It is susceptible to fireblight. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
