Cotoneaster are deciduous or evergreen shrubs or small trees. They hold an abundance of compact clusters of white or pink flowers in the spring and summer, followed by voluptuous red, purple or black berries in the autumn. They are best suited to flower borders and beds in wildlife, cottage and informal garden settings. You should expect to see Cotoneaster grow to an approximate height and spread of 5m (16.4’).
Cotoneaster are best planted in a position of full sun in well-drained soil of sand, clay, chalk and loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH level. These plants will tolerate cooler and drier climates but will need protection from severe weather conditions and windy areas, so ensure they are accommodated in an appropriate site.
Cotoneaster are relatively low maintenance shrubs and only need watering during prolonged periods of dry weather. They do not require regular fertilisation, but it is recommended to apply a good general fertiliser to shrubs that appear to be struggling. Apply a thick layer of mulch after planting to retain moisture whilst suppressing weeds. Cotoneaster can be pruned at any time of year, where you should only need to remove old, dead or diseased foliage.
