  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Ultimate size (MM111): 8 x 8m
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Edible crab apples, with pretty, pink-tinged, white flowers in late spring, followed by masses of glossy, round, cherry-red fruit. The fruits garland the branches for much of the winter as the bright green leaves turn shades of yellow and gold before falling. This pollution-tolerant, upright crab apple is a star of the garden all year round and makes a magnificent show in a small, sunny, urban site.

  • 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.
