    This is a very pretty, dwarf crab apple, that makes an excellent addition to smaller gardens. In spring, it produces a mass of dark pink flowers which emerge from carmine red buds, just as the dark purple leaves appear. As the leaves age they change to a dark green before a show of autumn colour. From late summer, large red fruits are produced which can remain well into winter and make a lovely red crab apple jelly. Perfect for a small garden or large pot.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Removed dead, diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant.
