Magdeburgensis Crabapple Trees

Magdeburgensis crabapples, also known as the Magdeburg apple, are fairly small trees that have orchard apple style blossom with white petals that are washed randomly with purpley-pink. Each flower has more than one row of inward curling petals, giving them a distinctive scrunched up look. The tree has a spreading growth habit, much like a typical orchard apple tree, growing out from a vase shaped young form into a wide, fairly flat crown. Its fruit are like tiny versions of the apples in children's books: shiny half red, half green little gems. Malus Magdeburgensis trees can reach a height of about 9 metres although 7 metres is more usual.

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. 

History of Malus Magdeburgensis 

This German tree was bred sometime in the 1800's. The RHS has given its flower cuttings an Award of Merit for use in flower displays.
