COTONEASTER FRANCHETII
 

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.
