Cotoneaster franchetii is a medium sized, almost evergreen shrub that makes a dense, attractive hedging plant. Cotoneaster franchetii is almost evergreen; 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 is a bushy shrub, ideal for hedging. 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.
Cotoneaster franchetii is good for hedges up to about 2 metres high. It is often planted in a mixed hedge with the Red Berried Cotoneaster Simonsii for a bit more colour.
