What is Cotoneaster

Cotoneaster is a genus of woody shrubs known for their dense growth and attractive berries.

These plants are members of the Rosaceae family, which includes roses and numerous fruit trees. You can recognise Cotoneaster by its small, glossy, dark green leaves and the plentiful red or black berries it produces.

Used for ornamental purposes, these shrubs are favoured in gardens for their durability and the visual interest they provide year-round. However, some species have become invasive in certain regions, displacing native vegetation and altering habitats.

Kev and his team at JKS provided an exceptional service when we needed help with our garden renovation. Kev was incredibly helpful, offering practical advice and creative solutions.

Lisa Chadwick


I recently had the pleasure of working with JKS for a landscaping project on our new property. Kev, the owner, was hands-on throughout the process, ensuring every detail was taken care of. His team was professional, efficient, and very respectful of my property. The end result was beyond my expectations. Kev’s personal involvement and dedication to customer satisfaction were truly commendable. I wouldn’t hesitate to use JKS again or recommend them to others.

What does Cotoneaster weed look like?

Cotoneaster is a genus that includes many species, often used as ornamental shrubs, but some can become invasive weeds.

Typically, Cotoneaster plants feature small, oval-shaped, and usually dark green leaves. The flowers are small, typically white or pink, and bloom in clusters in late spring or early summer.

After flowering, they produce small, round berries that are usually red or orange-red, though some species have black or yellow berries, which are quite noticeable and last into winter.

The shrubs can vary in form, from low and spreading to semi-upright or upright, with stiff and arching branches that contribute to a dense, tangled appearance in overgrown conditions.
