Cotoneaster horizontalis whole Cotoneaster horizontalis flowers

This plant has naturalised well since its introduction from China. It clambers over rocks and up walls growing with a herring bone pattern of branches which is one of the first things you notice about the plant. Like many Cotoneasters it has orange-red fruits. It is a deciduous plant.

Cotoneaster horizontalis has colonised much of England, much of Wales except for the high ground and can also be found in Scotland and Ireland but less frequently.
