List of files and visuals associated with this text.


Rock cotoneaster has a low, spreading habit, growing 2 feet tall spreading 5 to 8 feet. The fishbone branching pattern adds interest. The plant tolerates sun and wind and can be used as a ground cover. A good growing area is sunny with a well drained garden soil. The plant dislikes shade and moisture and is hard to transplant. The main ornamental feature is the persistent red fruit. The fall color is deep red to orange and the growth rate slow.

Several cultivars are listed: 'perpusilla'--leaves smaller, 'Tom Thumb'--finely branched, 'variegata'--leaves edged with white.
