Cotoneaster acutifolius, commonly called Peking cotoneaster, is an upright, deciduous shrub with a rounded top that typically grows to 6-10’ tall and as wide. It is noted for its pubescent twigs, pinkish-white spring flowers, dull green foliage, interesting fall color and persistent black fruits. Small, 5-petaled, white flowers with tinges of pink bloom in spring (May-June). Flowers have limited ornamental value. Flowers are followed by elliptic black fruits (3/4” long) that mature in fall and persist into winter. Ovate to elliptic, dull green leaves (to 2” long) are pubescent on both sides in the early part of the growing season. Leaves turn attractive shades of orange and red in fall. This plant is very similar in overall appearance to C. lucidus except the latter is noted for having shiny dark green leaves with less spring pubescence.
