Cotoneaster franchetii: Bareroot Hedging

Cotoneaster franchetii is a medium sized, bushy shrub that makes a dense, attractive hedging plant. It is almost evergreen in the UK; it keeps its leaves in a mild winter and loses them, usually in late winter, if the weather is harsh. This is normal and doesn't hurt the plants. It has pale pink flowers in the spring, followed by masses of decorative orange berries in autumn. Its neat green foliage clips beautifully, so you can keep it looking very tidy.
It is good for hedges up to about 2-3 metres high.

Growing Cotoneaster franchetii

It is not fussy about soil as long as it isn't waterlogged, and it doesn't mind a bit of shade either. It likes heavy clay, and is widely planted in polluted inner city areas.

Spacing a Cotoneaster franchetii hedge: Like most formal hedging, plant at 3 per metre, 33cm apart in a single row.

Cotoneaster franchetii in your Garden

It is a well-behaved shrub for the back of a border, easy to keep looking tidy.

As hedging, it is often mixed with the Red Berried Cotoneaster Simonsii for a bit more colour.
