Cotoneaster will tolerate most soil types, and is one of those shrubs that require little or no maintenance. They are considered semi-evergreen which means they will have colour during those cold, drab winter months, and provide shelter for the wildlife. The red berries of the Cotoneaster make this hedging plant very attractive to birds.
They are tough, hardy, drought tolerant and great for coastal / seaside areas. Cotoneaster is often forgotten about as being useful for hedging. But this tough evergreen hedge plant will grow up to 9 metres, require little to no maintenance, and provide wildlife with food during the autumn and winter months.
Where to Plant
Plant full sun to partial shade, tolerates most soil types, well draining. Plant 3-4 per metre single row, or 5-7 per metre double staggered for a more dense hedge. Water well during the hot spells.
