Comments: This is a large growing cotoneaster that makes a nice specimen shrub in the landscape provided that there is sufficient space for it to grow. Cotoneasters need full sunlight and perfect drainage. When pruning is necessary remove some of the old canes within the center of the plant to encourage new growth. This species produces a beautiful fountain-like form with an abundance of small leaves.
