Cotoneaster adpressus, sometimes commonly called creeping cotoneaster, is a prostrate, slow-growing, deciduous shrub that grows to only 1’ tall but spreads to 6’ wide. Horizontal branches may root where they touch the ground. Ovate to obovate, dark green leaves (to 1/2” long) have wavy margins. Leaves often turn a quality shade of red in fall. Five-petaled, tiny white flowers tinged with pink bloom singly or in pairs in late spring. Bees are attracted to the flowers. Flowers are followed by spherical dark red fruits (1/4” long) that mature in late summer to fall.
