Cotoneaster lacteus Hedge Plants Description

Cotoneaster Lacteus has an abundance of small white flowers in early summer, followed by red berries which last well into Winter. Cotoneaster likes sun but will tolerate shade and is suitable for coastal situations and poor soil. See more plants suited for exposed sites.

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.

See more information on all varieties of Cotoneaster in our Cotoneaster Hedging Guide

These plants are available all year round.

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

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.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

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
