Cotoneaster dammeri

This is an outstanding, easy to grow, versatile evergreen groundcover with a vigorous, wide-spreading growth habit and small, oval, glossy dark green leaves that take on a bronze to purplish cast during the winter. It becomes studded with masses of handsome, slightly fragrant, small white flowers in attractive clusters from May to June which are pink-tinged, flat-petalled and very attractive to bees. The flowers are followed by a prolific display of showy, bright, waxy red berries that persist well into the winter, attracting birds to the garden.
It has self-rooting tips which spread rapidly to form a dense, ground-hugging, weed suppressing carpet that makes efficient and attractive ground cover among other taller shrubs. Perfect for establishing on slopes and cascading over walls, its tolerance of a wide range of light and soil conditions also makes it an excellent choice for covering the bare ground beneath trees and tall shrubs.
Plant in groups 60cm apart if you wish to cover a large area
