Large-flowered cotoneaster is one of the few cotoneasters useful for its flowers. It is not often grown, possibly because it is susceptible to fire blight. Large- flowered cotoneaster needs sun to partial shade and any good garden soil. It has a height and spread of about 8 feet and produces white flowers in mid-May. The red fruit and the yellow fall color occur together. The growth habit is normally graceful and drooping.

One cultivar is listed: 'calocarpa'--larger, more numerous fruit.
