There are many types of cotoneaster, ranging in size from creepers to those growing 20' high, with an equal spread. I'll guess that you're growing Cotoneaster lacteus - the one most commonly grown as a hedge. This plant will spread to about 6' wide, so space your plants accordingly. If you want the hedge to fill in faster, place them only 4' apart.
