A gorgeous upright crab apple with masses of cup-shaped pink-flushed white flowers in late spring. These are followed in autumn by a profusion of small golden-yellow crab apples which remain for many weeks while the dark green leaves turn butter-yellow and fall. This compact pollution-tolerant crab apple is a beautiful ornamental tree for an urban site. It flowers and fruits best in full sun.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Remove dead, diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant.
