My cotoneaster has really come into its own this year.
I cut it back quite severely last September as I don’t think it had been cut back… ever? It was all looking a bit Sideshow Bob but the branches are now down to the ground in a weeping willow fashion.
Covered in tiny pink flowers, the bees absolutely love it and the birds will love the red berries this Winter.
I’m not certain I’d ever have chosen it myself but I’m thrilled I inherited it. It’s now a really good size and looks very pretty next to the blue of the ceanothus. Love. 💕
