October Plant of the Month – Cotoneaster

Cotoneaster is a genus of deciduous, semi-evergreen or evergreen shrubs grown for the foliage, flowers or as in this picture berries.  Some species may be used as a specimen plant others for hedging and still others for ground cover.  Deciduous species prefer sun but the evergreen species are quite happy in part or even complete shade.  Non of them like to be water logged and so can be quite happy in dry soil and so are most useful for some difficult areas.  The berries of cotoneaster can vary in colour from black, crimson through red ,orange and even yellow.  They do not have much trouble with pests or disease only fireblight maybe a problem.
