COTONEASTER dammeri ‘Lowfast’ 

Cotoneaster –

0348 “Lowfast cotoneaster is a vigorous, hardy, evergreen shrub with a spreading habit and decorative red fruit in fall. A selection from a central China native, ‘Lowfast’ matures at the same low height as its parent. Its glossy green foliage is accompanied by a profusion of tiny white or pale pink flowers in late spring, making the wispy shrub look almost flocked with bloom. In fall the branches fill with red berries and by winter the foliage takes on a purplish hue in the cold.

Bearberry cotoneaster grows best in moist, well-drained soil and full or partial sun, but is adaptable to many soil types. It is an ideal groundcover for rockeries or low banks, or along the edge of a stone patio or walk, or in seaside gardens. In time, with the excessive growth of twigs, it becomes an unkempt plant that should be re-shaped by a strict pruning, which it will endure without complaint. Fireblight and lacebugs can cause problems for this species, especially in warmer areas of its hardiness range.”
