Artist's Description

Branch of nice small bush, which I found close from my home :)

English name: Rockspray cotoneaster
Latin name: Cotoneaster horizontalis
Polish name: irga pozioma

Rockspray cotoneaster is a coarse, prostrate, slow-growing, horizontally-spreading, deciduous shrub, which typically matures to 12-18” tall and spreads to 5-8’ wide with tiers of flattened, horizontal branches arranged in a fishbone pattern. It features five-petaled, small pink flowers in early summer, bright scarlet berries in late summer to fall and tiny, rounded, lustrous, dark green leaves (to 3/8” long) that turn reddish-purple in fall.
Rockspray cotoneaster is a valuable landscape plant which offers good foliage, flowers and fruit, and provides shelter for small birds. Mass as a woody ground cover for sunny areas in the landscape including banks or slopes where it can also provide good erosion control. Sprawl over rocks in rock gardens or along stone walls.
