Thyme-Leaf Cotoneaster on Standard - Cotoneaster microphylla 'Thymifolius'

Our beloved Thyme-Leaf Cotoneaster is now on standard! (“On standard” is the official name for that long trunk.) We can only imagine the possibilities of this new idea in our miniature gardens. The branching habit will grow out from the "base" - as opposed to the Streib's Findling Cotoneaster on Standard where the branches will have a natural cascade effect.

White flowers in spring followed by red berries for a fall and winter display. Trim wayward growth and pinch off new growth that appears along the trunk when you see it.

What a treat. Supply is limited.
