Cotoneaster x suecicus 'Coral Beauty'
Bearberry Cotoneaster, Coral Beauty Bearberry Cotoneaster
A hybrid of bearberry cotoneaster (C. dammeri x C. conspicuus), 'Coral Beauty' is a dwarf evergreen shrub that forms a broad, low mound of shiny, rounded, dark green leaves decorated with many small berries in autumn. In late spring and early summer, tiny rose-shaped white flowers appear on its arching branches which are normally pollinated by bees. Abundant bright coral-tinted magenta berries mature in fall, attracting birds well into the start of winter, when the foliage becomes slightly bronzed or fully red by the cold.
Coral Beauty bearberry cotoneaster plants excel in full to part sun and moist but well-drained soil, but will tolerate drought once established. This is a great choice for erosion control on slopes, for spilling over the top of a wall, in concrete medians, or for other places where an attractive, billowing and seasonally-interesting evergreen groundcover is needed.
