‘Tom Thumb’ is an interesting, very dwarf, very dense and compact ground cover-type shrub. It has a unique appeal because of its very shiny, tiny leaves that turn a brilliant red-crimson in the autumn. It rarely produces flowers and fruit, but when it occurs the blooms are small, pinkish-white. Then the very small, red fruits follow. This cotoneaster spreads by rooting in where the branches touch the soil. Resistant to de-icing salt. Perfect for rock gardens.
