Cotoneaster horizontalis Hedge Plants Description

Cotoneaster horizontalis is deciduous but it is in the winter that it is most remarkable, it has a herringbone pattern of stems which form a basketweave structure, dripping with berries on its dark wood. In Spring, its tiny, neat leaves dont obscure the structure, and it develops nectar laden white/pink tinged flowers, followed in autumn by red berries. In november, its leaves go bright pink/red. For evergreen Cotoneaster varieties, see Cotoneaster franchetii, Cotoneaster simonsii or Cotoneaster lacteus.

See also our Cotoneaster Hedging Guide for more information.

It is very good in shade though its flowers and berries will be more prolific if grown in a sunny spot. See our full collection of flowering hedge plants. Cotoneaster horizontalis is an extremely tough plant and will grow anywhere other than extremely waterlogged soil. It can be cut back at any time with care to maintain its herringbone structure.

Prices shown are the price per plant. Recommended planting densities are shown but this is very much a matter of choice and you can increase or reduce the density depending on your level of patience and budget. See also our Advice section on Planting Density on the right hand side of our website.

These plants are available all year round.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. 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. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Cotoneaster horizontalis hedge trimming should be done twice a year, once in early June and again in late September. It is important to prune at the right time, so as not to remove new growing shoots. After pruning, plants benefit from mulching and feeding. Use either a general-purpose fertiliser or specialist rose or other high-potassium fertiliser.
