A Bit More

If you’re looking for a hardy groundcover with seasonal interest, Cotoneaster dammeri ‘Lowfast’ is the plant for you. Trailing branches of glossy green foliage form a low matt that grows 8” tall by 10’ wide, rooting as the stems creep along the ground. In late spring, button-sized white flowers bloom along the stems and are followed in summer by bright-red, ¼” berries. In fall and winter, its leaves turn red before settling into a purple color. If provided the right conditions, full sun to light shade and good drainage, be prepared for this Cotoneaster to spread quickly. Use Cotoneaster dammeri ‘Lowfast’ for erosion control or as a hardy groundcover in a variety of landscapes.
