Cotoneaster Glaucophyllus is a large evergreen shrub with small white flowers in summer and ruby-red berries in autumn. It’s suited to low maintenance ground cover or naturalistic hedging.

Cotoneaster Glaucophyllus is native to China and the Himalayas but was introduced to the UK in 1915. Its smoky grey-green foliage is dense with downward arching branches that sweep ground level. The foliage is very small and oval-shaped making it tough enough to withstand exposed conditions.

In spring this handsome shrub is covered in tiny white flowers that spread along its arching branches and attract pollinators. In autumn the flowers mature into pretty red berries. Cotoneaster Glaucophyllus is popular in foliage gardens for its interesting textured foliage and in front gardens where it tolerates pollution with little to no maintenance.

Height And Spread of Cotoneaster Glaucophyllus
Cotoneaster Glaucophyllus will grow to a height of 1 metre and spread over 2 metres. It is slow-growing and ground-hugging but can be kept smaller with a trim after it has flowered.

How Hardy Is Cotoneaster Glaucophyllus
Few shrubs are as tough as cotoneaster. It withstands the coldest and harshest of winters if its roots are well-drained. It is drought-tolerant and easy to grow with few pests or diseases.

How To Use Cotoneaster Glaucophyllus
If you are looking for a tough, low-maintenance evergreen then Cotoneaster Glaucophyllus is a good choice. Its grey-green foliage is attractive and it will grow in most spaces including front gardens, slopes, and coastal areas.

Exposed soils and slopes benefit from Cotoneaster’s ground-hugging habit and wildlife appreciates the dense foliage. It’s perfect for low maintenance areas and novice gardeners.

How To Care for Cotoneaster Glaucophyllus
Once established you can leave this tough shrub to its own devices. It will grow in most well-drained soils including chalk and clay and is not fussy about pH.

It enjoys full sun but will tolerate shade too. There is no need to prune as Cotoneaster holds its shrubby arching shape, but you can trim to maintain the size or symmetry.

Water well until established and apply a layer of mulch in spring to trap moisture and provide nutrients for the growing season.
