Description:

A deciduous shrub that can grow to a height of 12’ (3.6 metres)and almost as wide in loose spreading fashion. The limbs bear dark 1”-2” ( 25cm - 50cm)long, dark green oval leaves which are arranged in a simple, alternative fashion. The leaves are heavily veined thus distinguishing this species from other cotoneasters. 

In the late spring small white flowers appear which butterflies are attracted to for the nectar. As the flowers fade berries form during the summer. In the fall these globe shaped, quarter inch red berries provide nourishment for the birds, but should not be consumed by people as they can cause stomach upset and mouth and throat pain. Each fruit contains 4-5 seeds which can be used to start new plants.
