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' 0"–6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
