    'Crimson Cascade' is a beautiful weeping crab-apple with a mass of dusky pink blossom produced on cascading branches in spring, closely followed by pretty purple new foliage. Later in the year, deep red-purple fruits emerge as the leaves turn bronze-green, providing a lengthy season of interest for this charming ornamental tree.

  • 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.

  • Pollination Information: This apple has a very long flowering period, so belongs to all the pollination groups and therefore is ideal for using as a pollinating partner to all other apples.
  • Humans/Pets: Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten
