Portraits of
Cotoneaster horizontalis

   

Cotoneaster

   

Deciduous Horizontal Rockspray
has brilliantly red leaves with its berries
in late autumn. Then in High Winter
only the berries remain, as shown
in this December portrait.

   

Cotoneaster horizontalis

   

Working backward through the calendar,
here are the berries early in October
just before the leaves start turning red.

   

May Blooms

   

In May, before there were even green berries
on the semi-prostrate branches, there were
little pink bellflowers. Whatever of
the previous year's berries that were not
eaten by birds blacken & fall from the
branches at the tail-end of winter as
the shrub readied itself for new leaf growth.

Read more about this shrub on the
Cotoneaster horizontalis page.
