The Cotoneaster has a small insignificant pink flower that matures to a dark purple-black fruit in late summer. This fruit is rarely ever a mess and is often an attractant for birds. The foliage presents a tremendous show in the fall, taking on colors of yellow to orange to red. The colors tend to be the most vibrant in specimens planted in full sun conditions.
