    Google, 'shrub Mr Tom' or 'plant Mr Tom', if there is anything it will come up. I know of none.

    There's a pittosporum called Tom Thumb - https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/77301/i-Pittosporum-tenuifolium-i-Tom-Thumb/Details and I believe a fuchsia too.   Need to check whether or not they're hardy enough for your area.

    Not exactly the brief but there's a very nice traditional apple called 'Tom Putt'.

    No worries Philippa.  RG - it flowers, or it couldn't produce fruit.   Lovely way to remember a Tom.

    Oh yes - it's a lovely blossom tree . It's a dual purpose apple - cider and cooking and quite prolific. Really good old variety. But a small tree not a shrub image
