Large distinctive corrugated leaves which turn to glorious reds and oranges in autumn, masses of bright red berries. Should be planted more often as it is easy to grow. Introduced in 1898 from Western China.
Semi-evergreen in habit and growing upwards of 6m. It is a fantastic sight when its branches are weighed down in autumn and early winter with large bright red fruits. Easy to grow and not fussy. Raised at Exbury around 1930.
Not commonly found even though Cotoneaster dielsianus was discovered way back in China around 1900 it should be better known for its autumn leaf colour which turn brilliant reds and scarlet, quite superb.
