Discovered at Bron & Sons Nursery in British Columbia, this new Cotoneaster is a natural cross between C. lucidus and C. apiculatus. It has many of the attributes of C. lucidus that we so love for a hedge - great form, easily pruned, great foliage all season long plus great fall color. But what we really love about Autumn Inferno™ is the small red berries formed along the stems in fall. The berries stay on the plant until the birds come and take them, no mess involved. Perfect as a pruned formal hedge or let it go natural.
