Gray-leaf cotoneaster’s striking foliage provides wonderful contrast in low-maintenance landscapes. It looks stunning when combined with bronze, red and orange foliage plants. Its tough nature allows for plantings in xeriscapes, medians/highways, or low-water urban gardens. The small grey and slightly pubescent leaves form on somewhat arching branches.
