Cotoneaster horizontalis 'Perpusillus'

|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 1 to 2 ft. tall, spreading 5 to 7 ft. wide.|

|Design Ideas||This Cotoneaster gives a beautiful herringbone effect against a white wall or fence. Don't try to prune into a shape or it will lose its striking silhouette. Also excellent in rockeries where sprays of branches will arch out over the slope.|
|Companion Plants||Dogwood (Cornus); Cranberry Bush (Viburnum); Juniper (Juniperus); Magnolia (Magnolia); Rose (Rosa)|
|Care||Thrives in average to poor, well-drained soils. Space 4 to 5 ft. apart as groundcover; mulch to control weeds until plants fill in. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates drought in cooler climates. Fertilize in early spring. Prune as needed to shape.|
