Colourful cotoneasters to grow

Browse our list of six cotoneasters to grow, for flowers, berries and beautiful autumn colour.

Cotoneasters make useful garden shrubs and small trees, with most of them growing well in sun and partial shade. They bear a long season of interest thanks to their prolific summer flowers followed by deep red berries, which remain on the plant from autumn through winter. Many species have beautiful autumn foliage.

Cotoneaster flowers are a magnet for bees and the berries are eaten by birds.
