Neutral smiln32 On Aug 31, 2001, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

Cranberry cotoneaster is a dense, broad-upright, somewhat mounding deciduous shrub with stiffly arching branches. Typically grows to 3' tall with a spread to 6'. Small pinkish flowers in late spring give way to red (cranberry-like) berries (pomes) which mature in late summer and persist into winter. Rounded-ovate glossy green leaves (to 3/4" long) turn attractive shades of purple, red and bronze in autumn.
