WOW, what colors! I wish I could see a full-plant picture of the two together. I've never seen a lodgepole pine. Do those berries last all winter on the cotoneaster?

Here is one from the database, I think they are beautiful too. But they are expensive and rare.



Dwarf Lodgepole Pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia 'Chief Joseph')

Cottoneasters are invasive and non-native, also I heard they are poisonous. There are other native shrubs and trees that would be more beneficial. The birds do not usually eat the berries of Cottoneaster.

Try Grey Dogwood, Crab-apple, or Dwarf Way Myrtle or Bayberry. Also any Winter-berry or Viburnum but you must have a pollinator. Jim Dandy ( Ilex verticillata ) is good if you like the dwarf Red Sprites. They have big red berries that last into the winter. One male for up to 9-10 female shrubs. Green Grin!
