The key difference between Cotoneaster lacteus and Cotoneaster franchetii is that Late Cotoneaster has arching branches, a tendancy to trail downwards, and is most often see supported by a wall or fence. See also Cotoneaster simonsii which has large, red berries.

These plants are available all year round.
Recommended planting densities for pot grown 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. Cell grown should be planted at 4 per metre in a single row or ideally 6 per metre in a staggered row.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section
Cotoneaster lacteus 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
