NORTHERN BORDERS™ COTONEASTER

Cotoneaster horizontalis 'Variegatus'

Breeder
Buy Northern Borders⁜ Cotoneaster online. A durable woody ground cover, Northern Borders™ Variegated Cotoneaster hugs the ground, maturing at two to three feet and with a generous spread of five to eight feet. Outstanding blue-green foliage rimmed in white produces an overall silver effect in the landscape. This dense-growing cultivar is semi-evergreen and the noteworthy leaves persist until late in autumn when they change to a lovely orange-red color. In winter the leaves fall, revealing the celebrated "fan" or "herringbone" branch pattern for which this species is known.Northern Borders⁜ is a good subject for espalier and offers four seasons of interest. In spring, rosy buds open to tiny white flowers along the cinnamon-colored twigs. Later, the plant is laden with shiny scarlet fruit (¼ inch) liberally sprinkled throughout. These berries add color throughout winter, sparkling in the winter sun and providing food for songbirds and wildlife.

Customer Testimonials

Brian, just have to say that Colin was extremely nice & helpful when I placed my ordered & answered many questions. There is not an "excellent" choice in your survey questions or I would have chose that. I always look to Sooner first because of your friendly helpfulness, quality of plants, and superb packaging. As always, many thanks for all of it
