COTONEASTER dammeri 'Royal Beauty'
Bearberry Cotoneaster, Royal Beauty Cotoneaster
Royal Beauty cotoneaster is a vigorous, evergreen shrub with a spreading habit and decorative red fruit in fall. A selection from a central China native, it matures at a taller height than the species. Its glossy green foliage is joined in late spring by an immense profusion of tiny white flowers. In fall the branches fill with red berries and by winter the foliage takes on a purplish hue in the cold.
Bearberry cotoneaster grows best in moist, well-drained soil and full or partial sun, but is adaptable to many soil types. It is an ideal groundcover for rockeries or low banks, or along the edge of a stone patio or walk. In time, with the excessive growth of twigs, it becomes an unkempt plant. Prune it severely to maintain an uncluttered form. Fireblight and lacebugs can cause problems for this species, especially in warmer areas of its hardiness range.
