Cotoneaster simonsii Hedge Plants Description
Cotoneaster simonsii is a semi evergreen (almost evergreen, retains its leaves in mild winters) upright hedging plant, with small dense green leaves (some of which turn bright red in autumn) and it has profuse white/pink flowers in June (attractive to bees) and bright red, large berries in Autumn which stay on the plant for a long time.
Whilst it makes a great single species evergreen hedge the Himalayan Cotoneaster also looks very attractive planted with'Cotoneaster franchetii'which has orange berries, just to give a better depth of colour.
