Cotoneaster ???
« on: July 26, 2017, 05:47:58 PM »
Does anyone know much about Cotoneaster, particularly the dwarf ones.
I have a mat forming plant about 20 years old that I obtained as C.congestus,
I don't think it is. It has glossy green leaves without a blue tinge and red stems on
the new growth. Any thoughts ?

Hello,
       I know the post is old but just noticed it. The cotoneaster  looks very like on we grow. We have it named as Cotoneaster cochleatus minor . Ours tends to be fairly slow growing and very compact and prostrate with the ability to trail down or climb up small steps and walls.

Hope it helps
