Malus moerlandsii Crabapple Trees

Malus moerlandsii crabapple trees are also known as Director Moerland. It is disease resistant crabapple tree and was bred to resist canker and mildew, which can be problems for some of the other red or purple leaved crabapples. Malus moerlandsii has proven to be a success on the disease front and is every bit as pretty as its relatives. The young leaves are a fantastic crimson-purple, deepening to a rich green as they develop. The wine pink flowers are abundant and create a lovely layered colour effect with the foliage - bees go mad for them too. Malus Director Moerland has a rich autumn display and when the leaves have all fallen, the small, purplish fruit will continue to adorn the branches for several months. One of the best for a combination of foliage, flower, fruit and ease.

Malus moerlandsii can reach a height of about 7 metres.

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.
