Cranberry Cotoneaster

Contoneaster Apiculatus Pink buds open to white-pink flowers tightly pressed to the stems. Bloom in late May and early June the small but numerous clustered flowers are effective when a whole plant is in flower, especially when viewed up-close, but is not overwhelming. Fruit is red and glossy, maturing in late August and perhaps most effective in late Summer and early Autumn when contrasted against the glossy dark green foliage, 0.25" in diameter and persistent into early Winter, either abscising or eaten by wildlife.
