Probably the most popular hedge shrub next to the spire. The Cotoneaster lucidus is so often used in urban landscaping that it’s probably “used up”. But in autumn it is impossible to take your eyes off this shrub, because it turns into a real kaleidoscope, forming colorful patterns of all sorts of shades of autumn leaves. Yellow, orange, red, pink and green colours and their shades are present on one bush and even on each individual leaf at the same time.
Probably, while walking through the forest in autumn, many people noticed low bushes, which look out from the trunks of other trees with bright pink leaves. Birch bark beard (Euonymus verrucosus) is most often found in the middle forest, which can be identified by rugged dark growths (“warts”) on stalks.
5 Viburnum opulus
Common potatoes (Viburnum opulus) have many varieties. Some of them were created with a focus on the food use of bush berries and have larger fruits with softer flavour.

Others focus on ornamental use of shrubs: ‘Nanum’ (low-growth shape not exceeding 60 centimeters), ‘Park Harvest’ (with golden leaves throughout the season).
Barbaris is loved by many gardeners, because it combines high ornamentation and unpretentiousness. Barbaris has a huge variety of colors and types of bushes and they are all very attractive in the autumn. Three types of barberry are the most common in the culture: barberry tunberga (Berberis thunbergii), common barberry (Berberis vulgaris) and Ottawa barberry (berberis ottawensis).
The main living conditions for a barberry are a sunny place or a light penumbra and well-drained soil.
Spiraea, which flower in the first half of summer (vangueta, arguta, gray and others), most often keep green leaves on the branches for a long time, so they serve as a good background for trees and shrubs, whose leaves blaze with bright colors. Later, their leaves turn yellowish, and some varieties have separate twigs with motley-coloured leaves.
This shrub is quite common in urban landscaping, but not many gardeners pay attention to it, because the most common species – ordinary turquoise (Ligustrum vulgare) has a discreet appearance and without formation grows a fairly high shrub 3-4 meters high.
