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, or Cotoneaster horizontalis
for a deciduous variety of Cotoneaster.

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
