Cotoneaster lacteus (late cotoneaster) is a species of flowering plant in the genus Cotoneaster of the family Rosaceae, native to the Yunnan Province of China.

It is a large evergreen shrub growing to 4 m (13 ft) tall and wide. Clusters of white flowers are followed by masses of small, globose, red fruits (pomes) in autumn. [1] Unusually for this genus, the fruits are avoided by birds, hence garden escapes are rare, and the fruit persists on the plant throughout the winter.[2]
The Latin specific epithet lacteus refers to the milk-white flowers.[3]
