Hedge Cotoneaster, 'Cotoneaster lucidus', is an upright shrub that withstands pruning well, and it makes an excellent hedge because of its height and clean, glossy foliage. The small pink flowers in spring are followed by small black fruit in late summer. The dark green foliage turns yellow to red in the fall. It likes full sun; prefers a moist, well-drained soil, but can tolerate dryness; is wind tolerant; tolerates alkaline soil, and somewhat tolerant of salt. Hedge Contoneaster's excellent dense screen is good for hedges, bank covers, groupings, and wildlife habitat or shelterbelt filler. The birds appreciate the bright red fruits, turning deep red/black in autumn.
Scientific Name : Cotoneaster lucidus
