Malus × floribunda

Japanese crab apple

5 year guarantee RHS award of garden merit Perfect for pollinators
bare root 125cm+ £49.99

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Glorious, pale pink flowers open from red buds in mid and late spring, smothering the tree in a foam of blossom and concealing the small, bright green leaves. The small pea-like, golden yellow fruit often persist into winter. This Japanese crab apple is dense and spreading in habit and makes a lovely ornamental tree for a sunny, urban site. The long-lasting fruit provide a valuable source of winter food for wildlife.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Remove dead, diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant.
  • Humans/Pets: Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten
