This new disease-resistant crabapple is a beauty in more ways than one! In mid-spring the crimson buds open to dark purplish-red flowers that completely smother the tree. The leaves emerge as deep red-purple, and mature to a dark tawny green for the summer season. In autumn the foliage changes to an outstanding orange, a perfect foil for the shiny, red to purple fruit, a favourite of waxeyes and other birds. Tree habit is upright to spreading, so makes a great avenue or street tree. When tree matures shape becomes oval. 5 x 4m

These crab apples grow and flower well giving a beautiful pink display in spring. However be aware... the crab apples are VERY small... think smaller than a blackcurrant.
