Answer: Growing conditions have a lot to do with plant performance. 'Eichholz' can grow to 12" in height but might have grown lower in Medford. However, a look-alike plant is the ground hugging Cotoneaster adpressa 'Compacta' (Tom Thumb)which grows only about 3" high (and spreads 24" wide). Perhaps this is the plant you saw in Medford.
