    Genus of over 200 species of deciduous, evergreen trees and shrubs of the woods or rocky areas of the northern temperate regions of Europe, Asia and northern Africa. Cotonaster lacteus is a dense evergreen shrub up to 3-4 m tall, with arched branches bearing obovate or broadly elliptical leaves 3-4 cm long, dark green on the upper surface and with yellow-white felt on the lower one. In summer it produces numerous milky-white apical inflorescences followed by ovoid red fruits, which persist on the plant all winter until late spring, giving it a very decorative appearance.
