November portraits of
Cotoneaster horizontalis

   

Cotoneaster

Horizontal Rockspray (Cotoneaster horizontalis) is a low-growing
shrub with herring-bone structure. In Autumn the leaves begin
turning bright-bright red, about the same time the green
berries are ripening to an equally bright red. About half the leaves
in this November (2002) photo have turned red.

Another portrait from November (2003) shows the leaves
& berries achieving nearly identical color.
In December, the majority of the leaves will fall,
leaving only the berries for color during early winter.
The fern that pokes up through the horizontal cotoneaster
is a 'Lepidota Cristata' Lacy Crested Broad Buckler.

This shot from September (2005) again captures
the identically colored fruit & berries together.

Cotoneaster horizontalis Page.
