Cotoneaster horizontalis

One of the most interesting of the cotoneasters, C. horizontalis, is an excellent plant for terrace or balcony, for its distinctive form deserves to be seen close at hand. A deciduous shrub, hardy and slow-growing, with a maximum height of 3 feet (90 cm), it has horizontal branches with shoots on either side giving the effect of a fishbone, and these can give a spread of up to 8 feet (2.4 m). It provides interest throughout the year, for in early spring come masses of small, pointed leaves, followed by clusters of tiny pink and white flowers.
