Cotoneaster divaricatus
Spreading cotoneaster

Slender and purplish red, the young stems have an appressed brown pubescence that is most dense at the stem apex. As they mature, the stems become dark brown and glabrous. Like most cotoneasters, the stems emit a maraschino cherry-like odor when scratched.
