Home Cotoneaster 'Apiculatus'
Common Name: Cranberry cotoneaster
Cranberry cotoneaster (C. apiculatus) is a short but dense deciduous shrub with stiff branches that eventually arch. This species produces compact, pinkish flowers in late spring, and by mid summer the branches are covered with red berries that attract your eyes and those of many beloved birds. Berries persist until winter, and in autumn the glossy foliage turns striking shades of purple, red and bronze, further accentuating the appearance of the cranberry-red fruit.
This highly ornamental and seasonally variable shrub makes an excellent choice as ground cover or to create perimeters and paths, all with relatively easy maintenance. It also does well on banks and slopes.
