Looking for a hardy shrub to add to your garden? Look no further than Cotoneaster franchetii, also known as Franchet's or Orange Cotoneaster. Native to southwestern China, this evergreen or semi-evergreen shrub can withstand a range of growing conditions, making it a great choice for an informal windbreak hedge. Its shiny green leaves with dense whitish to yellowish hairs add a lovely touch to any landscape. Plus, the red pome fruit not only looks great, but can also be used to create a beautiful rose-tan dye. Tolerating trimming and producing clusters of pink and white flowers, this shrub is also a favorite of fruit-eating birds. Don't miss out on this versatile and attractive addition to your garden.
