Malus Liset / Lisette Crabapple Trees

Liset's yearly display begins with bright, strawberry red buds, which are slowly covered up by the young foliage in spring. The leaves start out in life stained a rich purple colour which becomes greener as they mature but never fully disappears, providing the ideal backdrop to the flowers. These are the stars of the show, with luminous red-pink petals that swarm all over the tree, second only to a cherry blossom in sheer weight of beautiful flowers. It is often mistaken for a flowering cherry at a distance. Even Liset's crabapples are a bit cherry like: shiny, very dark red fruit about 1.5 cms across. They finish off this tree's long season of interest, hanging on longer than the leaves and decorating the branches as winter closes in. Some can cling on into the new year when they become welcome food for local wildlife.

Though Lisette can grow to 8 metres, 6 metres represents a more likely height and it has a dense, compact growth habit that doesn't require much pruning.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
