Cotoneaster lucidus (Hedge Cotoneaster)

Hedge Cotoneaster, Shiny Cotoneaster


Cotoneaster lucidus (Hedge Cotoneaster) is a vigorous, erect, rounded, deciduous shrub with spreading branches clothed in elliptic-ovate, glossy, dark green leaves, up to 2 in. long (5 cm). The leaves turn brilliant shades of yellow and red in fall. In late spring to early summer, the branches are studded with small pinkish white flowers held in clusters of 3-8. Attractive to bees, they are followed by rounded, black berries which persist in the winter. Easy to grow, Hedge Cotoneaster is ideal for pruning and manipulating into geometric shapes. The shrub is densely branched so it makes an excellent cut hedge.
