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 an extended period.
Whilst it makes a great single species evergreen hedge, Himalayan Cotoneaster also looks very attractive planted alongside Cotoneaster franchetii which has orange berries, adding year-round interest and a depth of colour.
See also our Cotoneaster Hedging Guide for more information on all varieties of Cotoneaster hedging plants.

It responds well to trimming and can be kept in a neat shape by trimming in February, you can also trim any wayward stems after flowering. It is best kept at 1m to 1.5m but can be left to grow taller if needed.
