Streibs Findling Cotoneaster
Cotoneaster dammeri 'Streibs Findling'
|Description||One of the lowest growing cotoneasters! Excellent, flat growing groundcover displaying dense, tiny blue-green leaves. Tiny white flowers in spring are followed by showy red berries. Use on banks, berms, and to cascade over walls. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Once established water during dry spells.|
|Mature Size||Reaches only 6 in. tall, quickly spreading to 8 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Ground Cover, Hillside|
|Design Ideas||An exceptional mat forming groundcover that's exquisite in conjunction with landscape boulders or rocky outcroppings. A fine choice for the top of a retaining wall or spilling over the edges of raised masonry planters. Provides interest and weed blocking cover in Asian inspired landscapes or for the same in wild gardens. Topiary forms make wonderful garden or entry accents, especially when planted in pairs.|
|Companion Plants||Snowberry (Symphoricarpos); Cranberry Bush (Viburnum); Dogwood (Cornus); Beautyberry (Callicarpa); Magnolia (Magnolia)|
|Care||Grows in average to poor, well-drained soils. Space 4 to 5 ft. apart as groundcover. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. May be pruned annually to shape.|
|Lore||Sprigs with red berries are popular cut materials for indoor decor and flower arranging.|
