Cotoneaster franchetiiSold Out
An evergree, or semi evergreen shrub, sometimes used for hedging, but equally attractive as a stand alone shrub, cotoneaster franchetii, is quite slow growing, but can reach 3 metres high and wide in 10 to 20 years, although it can also be trimmed, if required. The small grren leaves are tinged white on the reverse, and the shrub has a graceful, arching habit, with clusters of small white, pink tinged flowers in summer, followed by slightly oval bright orange/red berries. A hardy shrub that will thrive in most soils except very waterlogged and any aspect, in sun or partial shade. Good for pollinators, and the berries are a staple diet for many garden birds, so overall this shrub is excellent for bringing wildlife into the garden.
