Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
COTONEASTER apiculatus 'Tom Thumb'
Cranberry Cotoneaster, Tom Thumb Cotoneaster
Originating from western China, Tom Thumb cranberry cotoneaster is a dwarf, clump-forming deciduous shrub with a low spreading habit. Its small medium green leaves turn ablaze with red color in fall, and its stems smell of maraschino cherries when broken. This slow-growing dwarf seldom bears flowers or fruit. Cranberry cotoneaster is less troubled with disease and insects than other cotoneasters and grows best where winters are cold. Provide it with average, well drained soil and full sun. In the landscape it works well in rock gardens and formal garden settings.
