Fast growing, dense, evergreen hedge with small ovate foliage, grey-green above and white beneath. Clusters of pink and white flowers loved by bees in June followed by persistent egg-shaped orange-red berries in autumn. The berries make good food for wildlife.
Recent Royal Horticultural Society scientists have proved that the small hairy leaves of Cotoneaster franchetti absorb 20% more pollution on roads with heavy traffic than most other shrubs. In just one week, a well-managed one metre length of hedge will mop up the equivalent pollution a car emits over a 500 mile drive.HEDGE Trim back vigorous shoots after flowering and trim to shape in February. For hedges 6-7ft (1.8-2.1m). Plant 2-3ft (60-90cm) apart. SHRUB 8ft x 5-6ft (2.4m x 1.5-1.8m). Makes a good specimen shrub which will be loved by pollinators in spring and hungry wildlife in winter.

We can only sell bare-rooted plants when they are dormant. Orders for bare-rooted plants will be sent when the plants are dormant again (depending on the weather this is normally in November). We still have a wide range of pot grown and cell grown plants available for despatch or collection.
We don't charge your credit card for goods until they are about to be despatched. Orders received before October will be charged at this season's prices. We process orders on a first come, first served basis so to get your plants as early as possible please place your order now.
