Cotoneaster Juliette Tree

Weeping Cotoneaster Trees

from £39.99 (ex. VAT)
( £47.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

This Weeping Cotoneaster, as it is commonly known, is a semi-evergreen, low-growing shrub, grafted onto a clear stem allowing the long branches to weep down freely. The leaves are small and dark green with pretty, white margins. Following the white flowers that emerge in June-July, a mass of eye-catching, orange/red berries are produced in the autumn.

This weeping tree will grow to just 1.5 x 1 metres in 20 years making it ideal for small spaces or container growing.  A tough tree, Juliette will tolerate exposed and coastal positions and thrives in well-drained soils with full sun or semi-shade. A very lovely  tree, resilient enough to handle difficult positions.

Planting Advice for Cotoneaster Juliette trees

When planting Cotoneaster trees, such as the Weeping Cotoneaster tree, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown Cotoneaster trees can be planted at any time of the year. You will need to carry out the following to prepare your planting site.

Firstly, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil. Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole.

If your soil is poor, mix 50% of the original soil with 50% high quality compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

Aftercare Advice for Weeping Cotoneaster trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass around the area as this will only encourage it to grow more vigorously. If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Cotoneaster Juliette trees

Cotoneaster trees and shrubs do not need a lot of pruning. Just trim any overly long or wayward branches. Any branches that are trailing toward the ground should also be removed as they can take root and form a separate tree. If you want to control the overall size of your cotoneaster tree, it can handle hard pruning. It can either be cut right back, or if you don’t wish to be that severe, remove 1 in every 3 branches, selecting the oldest each time. Pruning can be carried out at any time of year, but the dormant season (autumn to winter) is preferable.
