COTONEASTER dammeri 'Streibs Findling'
Bearberry Cotoneaster, Streibs Findling Cotoneaster
Streibs Findling cotoneaster is a vigorous, evergreen shrub with a very low, spreading habit and abundant decorative red fruits in fall. Selected from a central China native, it matures at a much lower height and has smaller leaves than the species. Its mildly glossy green foliage is accompanied in late spring by enormous numbers 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 it is adaptable to many soil types. It is an ideal ground cover for rockeries or low banks, or along the edge of a stone patio or walk. In time, with an excessive growth of twigs, it can become an unkempt plant. Prune to keep it shapely--it will not mind. Fireblight and lacebugs can be problems for this species, especially in warmer areas of its hardiness range.
