Cotoneaster adpressus 'Little Gem' (Large Plant)

Cotoneaster 'Tom Thumb'

Hardy Shrub

This low growing, deciduous shrub has a handsome spreading habit, forming a neat mound of green foliage. The dense leaves turn to gentle shades of red and purple as autumn approaches. Small, white summer flowers are followed by an attractive display of scarlet winter berries that are loved by birds. The distinctive prostrate form of Cotoneaster adpressus 'Little Gem' makes it perfect for low growing ground cover in rockeries and borders. A superb specimen for cascading down banks and low walls. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 200cm (79").
