Malus 'Adirondack'

crab apple ( syn. Malus Admiration)

5 year guarantee RHS award of garden merit
11lt pot (1.5-1.8m) £89.99

This plant 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: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This is a very pretty but edible crab apple, that makes an excellent addition to smaller gardens. In spring, it produces a mass of large waxy white flowers which emerge from carmine red buds, just as the fresh green leaves start to appear. From late summer, these are followed by the edible bronze-red fruits, which remain until well into winter. 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.
