Buy Cotoneaster × suecicus 'Coral Beauty' coral beauty cotoneaster: Orange-red berries follow creamy white flowers

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    When established this low-growing evergreen shrub will form a dense mat of weed-smothering foliage. It is not at all boring though as it is smothered in late spring and early summer with small creamy white flowers. These are followed in autumn with masses of orange-red berries, which will not only look great, but will also help attract birds into the garden.

  • Garden care: After flowering, lightly cut back any branches that spoil the symmetry of the plant and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. In autumn trim back lightly any branches that obscure the display of fruit.

Just what I wanted


This plant is growing well under creepers on a fence that gets no sun. It took a year or two to position its branches to the best advantage, but the leaves shine out and the flowers attract bees and the branches are spreading and arranging themselves gracefully.




Great evergreen ground cover


Seem to be doing well even in my dry soil on a bank, Producing flowers in the spring which the bees loved followed by berries in the autumn which were loved by the blackbirds, so a great plant to attract wildlife into the garden. Hoping as they establish more they wiill help to suppress the weeds.

Hi I bought 2 pots of Coral Beauty Cotoneaster in September 2015. They were just 2 branches at the start but have grown fast to cover a decent area. The only disappointment is that there are no berries! A handful max in total, while I see that neighbours with the same plant have plenty of berries. What can I do to get berries next year? Thanks.


Hello, If it is flowering well and the bees are pollinating the flowers, then they should go on to produce berries. Do make sure however that the plants get a decent amount of sun and they do not get too dry.


Plants birds love in the winter garden

As frost descends and the leaves gather on the lawn, the most important colour is red because it glows against the backdrop of fading stems in muddy shades of khaki, grey and brown. Red’s the colour that fixes the rest of the palette and luckily red berri
