'Tom Thumb' has a unique appeal due to its shiny miniature leaves and the herringbone pattern of its branches. This dwarf variety will eventually spread to 6' and self-root where limbs touch the ground. Although it rarely bears fruit, the stunning red fall color is reward enough. Looks spectacular in a rock garden. Prefers dry soil and full sun.
