The Tom Thumb Creeping Cotoneaster Cotoneaster adpressus 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 small leaves that turn a brilliant red-crimson in the autumn. Tom Thumb 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. Its branches are opposite along the stem so creates a herringbone effect or pattern. Tom Thumb is a true dwarf not only in that it remains very close to the ground but even the leaves are tinier than the species. This low-maintenance miniature woody shrub prefers dry soil (within reason) and full sun though it will do well enough in partial shade. It is a very charming plant!.
