at Digging Dog

Cotoneaster

Cotoneaster dammeri ‘Coral Beauty’ full sun  partial shade  new plant

A more compact habit, increased leaf luster plus copious coral red fruit distinguish this winsome mostly evergreen AGM recipient from Cotoneaster dammeri, a central and southern Chinese native. Boasting easy-care, year-round appeal, the attractive interlacing mass of stiff slender branches premieres diminutive 5-petaled sparkling white flowers with purple anthers plus colorful late summer and early winter fruit amid petite, leathery deep green foliage that tinges purple in cold weather. Undaunted by deer, poor soil, dry conditions and erosion, but woeful if the weather’s too hot, long-lived ‘Coral Beauty’ crafts a low-lying woody ground cover for rock gardens, foundations, walls or embankments.

Blooms May–June

Size: 6"–12" high x 4'–6' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
