The Hedge Cotoneaster is a robust, deciduous shrub known for its dense and sturdy form, making it an excellent choice for hedges and privacy screens. It typically reaches a mature size of 6 to 10 feet in height and 4 to 8 feet in width. This plant thrives in a variety of soil types, although well-drained soil is preferable. It is adaptable to both full sun and partial shade, making it versatile for different garden settings.

Hardy in Canadian cold hardiness zones 2 to 7, the Hedge Cotoneaster is well-suited for harsher climates and can withstand severe winter conditions. It features small, dark green leaves that turn to shades of yellow and red in the fall, adding seasonal interest to landscapes. Small, pinkish-white flowers bloom in late spring, followed by black, berry-like fruits that attract birds.

Regular pruning is recommended to maintain its shape and density, especially when used as a hedge. This plant is generally low-maintenance and resistant to most pests and diseases, making it a reliable choice for gardeners of all levels. Its ability to tolerate urban conditions also makes it suitable for city gardens and streetscapes.
