Cotoneaster Tom Thumb Shrubs can be used as miniature accent, hedge or ground cover plants, and produces spreading branches that display an interesting herringbone pattern. Small white flowers appear in the summer and are followed by large, beautiful red berries that brighten the winter landscape.

The Tom Thumbs produce very shiny, small leaves that turn a brilliant red-crimson in the fall. 'Tom Thumb' rarely produces flowers and fruit, but when it occurs, the blooms are small, and white. Then, the very small, ¼", red fruit appears in fall.
