Product details

This small crab apple provides profuse white tinged pink in bud flowers in the spring and a good yellow autumn colour. Yellow / green and occasionally red flushed fruits are a favourite for birds in the autumn.

Most suited to heavy and clay soils this small tree is rarely seen above twenty feet in height and is the parent of numerous crab and eating apple varieties.

Ideal for native mixed planting or shelterbelts that provide great low cover for wildlife.

If you live in an area prone to rabbits or deer then we recommend rabbit guards for these trees.
