Tom Thumb Creeping Cotoneaster

'Tom Thumb' has a unique appeal due to its shiny miniature leaves and the herringbone pattern of its branches. This dwarf variety will eventually spread to 6' and self-root where limbs touch the ground. Although it rarely bears fruit, the stunning red fall color is reward enough. Looks spectacular in a rock garden. Prefers dry soil and full sun.

Plant Features:

  • Height: 8 - 12"
  • Spread: 4 - 6'
  • Shape: Low, spreading
  • Foliage: Glossy, dark green
  • Fall Foliage: Red
  • Zone: 4 - 9

What Our Clients Have to Say

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
