Cotoneaster franchetii Hedge Plants Description

Cotoneaster franchetii hedging has sage green leaves with white undersides, five-petalled white flowers tinged with pink in May and June and an abundance of deep orange-red, pearl sized bird-friendly berries in autumn. It is very hardy and suitable for all soils other than very wet and any situation from full sun to dense shade. See also our range of hedging plants for shade.

Trim Cotoneaster franchetii after the berries have fallen. It is an evergreen but some leaves will drop in autumn and it can also take on an autumn colour some years. Cotoneaster franchetii is suitable for coastal areas and performs well in exposed sites. See more options for hedging for exposed sites.Cotoneaster franchetii has also been shown to be effective at reducing pollution in heavily trafficked areas, soaking up 20% more toxins than other hedging varieties with its dense, evergreen, hairy leaves.

The key difference between Cotoneaster franchetii and Cotoneaster lacteus is that franchetii is more erect and does not need the support of a wall or fence. We also stock Cotoneaster horizontalis and Cotoneaster simonsii, but if you're unsure which variety of cotoneaster is right for you, try out our Cotoneaster Hedging Guide.

*Please note that in accordance with DEFRA regulations, we are unable to dispatch this species to anywhere outside of the UK Mainland.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

The best advice for pruning Cotoneaster Franchetii is to trim after the berries have fallen. After pruning, plants benefit from mulching and feeding. Use either a general-purpose fertiliser or specialist rose or other high-potassium fertiliser.
