Willowleaf Cotoneaster


This attractive vigorous grower will thrive with little or no maintenance. The low-growing branches are covered with narrow, pointed, lance-shaped dark green leaves. White flowers in spring are followed by long-lasting shiny bright red fruits. Useful on dry slopes to reduce erosion, as a weeping ground cover, or low shrub.
