Cotoneaster Cornubia Trees

Cotoneaster Cornubia is a small tree with white flowers and red berries that stay on the branches well into winter. Suitable for any soil with decent drainage. This is really a large, vigorous shrub that we have grown with a single stem. It has clouds of little white flowers, attractive red berries and loads of winter interest. The long, narrow leaves are semi-evergreen, meaning that the mottled yellow and tan red autumn foliage stays on the tree through the winter in most parts of Britain, unless the weather is exceptionally harsh. If you have a sheltered garden in the middle of a city, you are pretty certain to get a good screen all year round. Cotoneaster cornubia produces masses of little white flowers in summer which are a glorious sight, foaming out of the tree and attracting as many bees and butterflies as a Buddleia. These flowers develop into almost equally abundant red fruit in thick clusters which will brighten up your garden's winter scene and attract hungry birds. Your tree will form a loose, rounded crown all by itself. If you need to prune any stray branches, do so in midwinter, until February.

Cotoneaster Cornubia trees can reach a height of about 6 metres.

How Standard Trees are Measured: All our standards, are graded by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height. Standard trees are 2.5 - 4.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us.

General description of Cotoneaster Cornubia trees:History & uses of Cotoneaster Cornubia: This tree was bred in Exbury gardens around 1930. It is listed as both Cotoneaster frigidus Cornubia and Cotoneaster x watereri Cornubia. Cotoneaster trees are distantly related to apples and the fruits are edible, though not wildly tasty.
