Cotoneaster dammeri


Bearberry Cotoneaster

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 7.105.050


This fast-growing creeping shrub is an excellent groundcover for establishing on slopes and dangling over walls. Small fragrant white flowers appear in late spring, followed by bright red berries in autumn that remain well into winter. Evergreen and very durable. Drought tolerant once established. Space 1 to 2 plants per square yard. Pinching growth tips in spring for the first couple of years will help to encourage an especially dense habit. Prune out any dead branches when noticed. In cold winter regions the leaves sometimes drop in late winter but are replaced by new ones.
