Variegated Rock Cotoneaster
Cotoneaster horizontalis 'Variegatus'
|Description||An interesting accent or groundcover due to its prostrate arching branches that display a herringbone pattern. Dainty leaves are edged in white, shaded pink to red in fall. Colorful orange red fall foliage backs shiny red fruit. Thrives in cool summer areas and adapts well to coastal conditions. Deciduous.|
|Light||Full sun, Partial sun|
|Watering||Once established water during dry spells.|
|Mature Size||Slow growing 2 to 3 ft. tall, 5 to 8 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Ground Cover, Hillside|
|Design Ideas||Lovely white variegation on this valuable low growing shrub. Plant as a groundcover or where it can spread its herringbone branches up against the wall. Pruning damages its fine form. Red berries are a fine addition to the winter landscape.|
|Companion Plants||Plant against a partial shade wall with big leaf foliage plants like Hosta and Heuchera. Use as a sunny groundcover with a background of taller perennials and shrubs that offset the berries like Penstemmon, Heavenly Bamboo, Smoke Tree, and Yucca.|
|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.|
