Commonly known as Late Cotoneaster, Cotoneaster Lacteus is a large evergreen shrub or small tree with arching branches. Its low-growing foliage works well as an easy solution to filling large spaces. It has pretty, white flowers that develop in large corymbs during spring and impressive clusters of orange-red berries in autumn which are wildlife-friendly and persist well into winter.
Cotoneaster Lacteus will tolerate most conditions including dry soils and can survive in north-facing, cold sites, although like all flowering/berrying trees, it prefers sun or partial shade. A beautiful, wildlife-friendly, evergreen Cotoneaster with year round interest.
