    A gorgeous, upright edible crab apple with masses of cup-shaped, pink-flushed, white flowers in late spring. These are followed in autumn by a profusion of small, golden-yellow crab apples which remain for many weeks, while the dark green leaves turn butter-yellow and fall. This compact, pollution-tolerant crab apple is a beautiful ornamental tree for an urban site. It flowers and fruits best in full sun.

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