Generally speaking, I love bearberry cotoneasters. They're great groundcovers, forming mats of clean, glossy, dark green foliage that help the white flowers show off in spring, followed by bright red fruit in late summer.

'Mooncreeper' improves upon this formula. It's more vigorous in every respect: it has larger leaves, larger and showier flowers, and spectacular fruit production. Its vigor makes it perfect as a groundcover, allowing it to cover large areas more quickly than usual. It performs well in the Southeastern United States where other cultivars haven't done as well.

Try it as a single specimen in a rock garden, in large areas where you need filler, or as a specimen in your perennial bed. I really like letting spring bulbs like crocus and snowdrops grow up through the branches.
