Malus 'Indian Magic'

crab apple Indian Magic

5 year guarantee RHS award of garden merit
bare root 125cm+ £39.99

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: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of magenta-pink flowers emerge from dark buds to cover this small, rounded, spreading deciduous crab apple tree in pinkish loveliness from mid-spring. Bronze-tinted foliage follows the flowers and darkens with age. Later in the year, small reddish fruits gradually turn orange over time. The fruits of 'Indian Magic' can remain on the tree beyond Christmas and are seasonal gifts gobbled up by blackbirds!

  • Garden care: Plant 'Indian Magic' as soon as conditions allow (avoiding frozen and waterlogged soil). Choose a sheltered spot to protect emerging blossom. Incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake and support firmly. If required, prune in winter to remove any dead, diseased or crossing branches.
