Plant details

Deciduous cotoneasters are fine plants with attractive flowers in late spring and early summer, but they are mainly grown for their brilliant displays of berries and bright leaf tints in autumn, when they become a major feature. C. splendens is one of the best for late colour. It is a handsome shrub, moderately sized and suitable for most gardens, although easily restrained by annual pruning. Plants are attractive when in flower, the small cup-shaped blooms, pink edged with red, prettily decorating the branching stems. In autumn the berries and leaves combine in a fiery display.
