This introduction from the Himalayas has successfully established itself at many sites in the UK. It sprawls over the lower sloping rocks of a cliff face at this site and is well naturalised. Unlike some species of Cotoneaster with insignificant flowers, this one can be quite impressive with it small shiny leaves and proportionately much larger flowers.

Stace reckons there is confusion between this species and Cotoneaster microphyllus (Small-leaved Cotoneaster) and makes the comment that material determined from Great Britain has so far all proved to be Cotoneaster integrifolius.
