Cotoneaster conspicuus is one of the most valuable of the smaller shrubby species as regards both flower and fruit. The berries are not attractive to birds and usually persist on the bush throughout the winter;the same is true in its native Tibet, where Frank Kingdon-Ward saw bushes still covered with fruit in mid-April.

An evergreen shrub of low,spreading habit, but in time can reach up to 6ft or so in cultivation. The tiny leaves varying from ovate, oval and oblanceolate to linear-obovate, eventually glabrous and shining, black-green above, grey and woolly beneath. The flowers are solitary,abundantly produced all along the pendulous branches, remarkably large for the genus with petals spreading, roundish, white, opening in May with anthers, dark red-purple. The bright shining scarlet, mostly globose fruit is borne in equal abundance from September and remains throughout the winter

Native of S.E. Tibet; discovered and introduced by the great Plant Hunter Frank Kingdon-Ward in 1925 from Gyala on the Tsangpo River.
