A very pretty dwarf crab apple, that makes an excellent addition to smaller gardens. In spring, it produces a mass of coral pink buds which burst open to double rose-pink flowers giving a delightful two-tone effect just as the lush green leaves start to appear. From late summer, these are followed by bronze fruits, which remain until well into winter.
The crown of this small tree has been grafted onto the upright stem of the rootstock at a height of 45cm, which will limit the eventual height. Perfect for a small garden or growing in a 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.
