Flowering Crab Apples are some of the most decorative smaller garden trees, covered in white, pink, or purple Spring blossom.
Their foliage comes in green and purple, and most varieties colour well in autumn before displaying their crab apples like bright marzipan fruits until after well Christmas.

Many varieties of Malus sylvestris are useful for people with domestic apple trees, because they have such a long flowering period that they will pollinate your entire orchard. By far, the two best varieties for this purpose are Golden Hornet and John Downie
All crab apples are self fertile and do not need a pollination partner.

What size Crab Apple trees should I buy?

  • If you are not in a hurry to get a full sized Crab Appletree, we recommend starting with the smaller 6/8cm girth size.
  • If you are in a hurry and need instant impact, then go for the 8/10cm girth size.

Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height.
So, a 6/8cm Standard Crab apple tree is much bigger than an 60/80cm sapling Crab apple tree. If a tree is available in both sizes, it will be noted in the product description.
