Out of stock
From the Cheyenne Station comes this extremely hardy and exceptionally stunning red-fruited cotoneaster. Beautiful hanging racemes of white flowers emerging in spring are a spectacular sight to see followed by the red fruit. This is a very rare introduction, in fact we are only aware of one grower of this shrub in North America—ours! This is a wonderful informal hedge plant for the toughest conditions. Originally found near the Sungari River in China.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:
These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.
About sizes of our plants:
Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
