Cotoneaster frigidus 'Cornubia' is a lovely arching, semi-evergreen tree with long, pointed leaves glazed with a good mid/dark green colour. In June-July, masses of fluffy, white corymbs of flowers appear that are extremely attractive to bees and insects due to their strong, floral scent. In the autumn, a huge crop of eye-catching, red berries develop, creating a lovely, long-lasting display.
Forming a tree with a height and spread of around 6 x 4 metres in 20 years, 'Cornubia' has received the RHS Award of Garden Merit and makes a wonderful addition to any garden. Being semi-evergreen means that only the very harshest of winters will cause this Cotoneaster variety to lose its foliage cover. It will tolerate most conditions including exposed and coastal positions, as long as there is well-drained soil and sun or semi-shade.
