Cotoneaster franchetii query

i have a cotoneaster franchetii as a specimen shrub, but have noticed that it's become a bit tatty and Bald this winter, I have read up a little on this shrub and they all say it's evergreen so I can't understand why mines looking a little sad. I'm not to sure that this cotoneaster could be semi evergreen ???.

cheers kevin.

    It's semi evergreen Kev, so I wouldn't worry too much, it's been a cool spring so far so give it a chance. A feed and light prune will encourage new growth.

    Cheers Dave I did think it might be. I bought it last season and it looked great with its light green leaves and orangie berries. Will take your advice.

    Many thanks Kev.
