Cotoneaster franchetii hedge plants (Franchet's Cotoneaster) description

This evergreen hedging is perfect for exposed sites, coastal or inland, and grows well in any soil that isn't very wet. In extremely cold winters, some of the foliage from your Cotoneaster franchetii hedge plants may turn autumnal shades before falling; however, they will generally stay fully evergreen, providing a good screen and windbreak. Unlike some other varieties of Cotoneaster hedging, such as Horizontalis, Franchet's Cotoneaster has an upright habit and is self-supporting. Cotoneaster franchetii makes a great habitat for wildlife, mainly birds, who feed on the red/dark orange winter berries that also provide seasonal interest.

Common uses of Franchet's Cotoneaster hedging

Cotoneaster franchetii hedge plants are easily maintained in a neat shape for formal hedging but look equally as appealing when left slightly bushy, working well for garden and landscape hedging alike.
