Cotoneaster dammeri 'Mooncreeper'The distinctive characteristic of this evergreen Cotoneaster is its habit: it grows flatly against the ground to create a kind of sod. Its leaves are small, slightly lustrous, and bright green in colour. Small red fruits are borne in late summer. Due to its habit, this beautiful groundcover requires no maintenance. The plants grow well in any type of garden soil but prefer a sandy soil containing humus. They should be planted in a sunny or partially shaded location.
Sarcococca hookeriana var. humulisSarcococca hookeriana var. humilis is a fairly unknown evergreen shrub. Its small white, sweetly scented flowers borne from January to March are visually conspicuous among its narrow deep green leaves. The flowers later develop into round black fruits. The plant reaches a height of about 40 cm and branches heavily in a horizontal direction.
