Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A low growing shrub for ground cover, the deciduous Cotoneaster adpressus 'Little Gem' fills it's role superbly. Little Gem has a spreading habit with mounds of green foliage so it can be relied upon to offer generous ground cover and will also carpet low walls or even banks that are impractical to manage with planting that needs more attention. It's not just green foliage as Cotoneaster brings 3 points of interest through the seasons, there are small white flowers in the summer followed by red berries that birds love and then the foliage bows out in shades of red and purple in autumn. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 200cm (79").
