Cranberry Cotoneaster

Cotoneaster apiculatus

This dense shrub features stiff branches arching to form a thick and full mound.  Glossy, dark green, oval leaves are 3/4" in length.  Small pink flowers bloom in late spring and early summer.  The Cranberry Cotoneaster will produce 1/4" round, ornamental, red berries that mature in late summer, and persist into early winter.  Autumn colors range from yellow and orange to red and purple.  This shrub is used in foundation plantings, shrub borders, for ground cover or planted to cascade over a wall.  Often used as an effective means of erosion control.

    Cranberry Cotoneaster is seldom damaged by deer, however rabbits find this plant to be very attractive. Rabbits can cause severe damage during winter.

    when is the best time to prune in midwest

    Mar 20, 2019, 09:13 AM

    Pruning is seldom needed on the Cranberry Cotoneaster, but may be pruned selectively in early spring. Cranberry Cotoneaster blooms on old wood, so keep in mind that pruning will remove flowers and subsequent fruiting.
