No thorns on this - just hundreds of berries!




That is Contoneaster, I'm sure. Lovely at this time of year and a good ground cover.

Looks like my Cotoneaster horizontalis.

If it's low to the ground and has a growing habit where the main stem curves downwards,then you have a Rockspray Cotoneaster (Cononeaster horizontalis). As you probably know it has a brilliant red autumn leaf colour. Blackbirds love the berries and bees love the flowers.
