COTONEASTER acutifolis ‘Lucidus’

Cotoneaster, Peking –

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA “Hedge cotoneaster, native to Russian Siberia, is a deciduous shrub with an upright form, The glossy dark-green foliage turns red in the fall and the white or pale pink flowers appear in mid to late spring, followed by black berries in the fall that persist for months. Neither the flowers nor the berries are overly decorative, but en masse add interest to the plant.

This Cotoneaster is vigorous and grows best in well-drained soil and full sun. It is a tough, very cold hardy plant that is great for difficult sites. In mild winter climates, the plant may retain leaves. It is often used as a sheared hedge or screen, or as a topiary, but is much more attractive if left to its natural unpruned form.”
