Name a shrub that can have an attractive floral display, showy fruit production, excellent fall colour, can be used as a groundcover, foundation plant or rockery specimen and is attractive to wildlife. It's a short list but the low-growing Cotoneaster species would be one correct plant.
The flowers are generally white or pink-tinted and mat be solitary or in clusters. The fruit, which are often persistent through the winter, are mostly bright orange-red. The berries are eagerly sought by fruit-eating birds such as robins.
Bottom line, for those who garden in zones 4-9, there are at least a few cotoneaster suitable for your garden. Any soil that is not too boggy will suit them, even relatively poor soils. Full sun is best, but many will tolerate part shade. Weekly watering is fine is most areas.
