Cotoneaster Hybridus ‘Pendulus’ Cotoneaster

Cotoneaster

Description: Small evergreen garden tree, with long weeping branches that arch down to create a dome effect. The foliage is a rich mid-green colour and makes a fantastic foil for the summer flowers and autumn berries. The colourful red berries cover the tree in autumn and provide yet more food for wildlife through winter, particularly birds including Waxwings. Seeds of the fruit may cause mild stomach upset if ingested.
