In a plant survey I’m doing, I recently found a decent-sized Cotoneaster glaucophylla.
A list of weed species observed in the reserve in 1990 also listed C. glaucophylla.
A 1979 list, however, only listed a Cotoneaster sp. I’m trying to figure out if the 1976 entity was also C. glaucophylla, or one of the other species naturalised in the area. Is it conceivable that the tree I photographed was alive in 1976? Can’t find much reliable info online.
