This small, broadly conical tree has a very beautiful spring flowering display and in my opinion is one of the best of the Crab Apple varieties. The buds, initially pink in colour, open to pure white blossom with a wonderful fragrance. They are followed by small ‘Cox’-like crab apples which persist on the tree for most of the winter, creating a Christmas bauble effect.
Flowers: Very pretty pink buds, opening to pure white with a lovely, fresh fragrance.
Fruit: Yellow-orange to red crab apples, very much like small Cox apples.
Leaves: Green, apple like leaves.
Autumn colour: Golden yellow.
Ultimate height: 8m
Uses: Very useful small tree as a specimen with a beautiful flower and fruit display.
