What Are The True Height And Width Of Willow Leaf Cotoneaster

Q: Hello, I’m reading many articles on willow leaf cotoneaster, and some say the spread is 10 feet by 10 feet others say 10 inches tall and 8 foot wide, others are saying only a mounding 18 inches. I have several locations to put this but want the correct spacing. Please help! What is the actual dimension!

A: The confusion comes from the fact that height and width depend on the variety. Newer varieties are being developed that are more compact and smaller than the specie shrub. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
