A medium sized evergreen related to Cotoneaster salicifolius with luxuriant large dark green leaves which are the most distinctive in the genus, attractively felted in buff indumentum beneath together with the young shoots in spring. Flowers abundant in large trusses of creamy white, initially covered attractively in cream coloured down in July, are followed from October by large bunches of orange going bright red fruit.
