Malus Red Jade: Bareroot Red Jade Weeping Crab Apple Trees in Standard Sizes

Malus × scheideckeri Red Jade is a superb little weeping crab apple tree with pink buds that open into mostly white blossom and mature into little red fruit. The flowers are extremely profuse; some are creamy white and some retain some of the bud's pink pigment. A thriving tree in bloom will be swallowed up in flowers that nearly reach down to the ground. Once the tree is mature, it provides you with a yearly opportunity to lie down and relax directly under a thick canopy of flowers.

Red Jade's other great feature is the small, cherry-like red fruit, which are as plentiful as the flowers and hang onto the branches, giving you something nice to look at well into winter. If your tree is in a sheltered spot, there may still be one or two left hanging on when the tree starts to wake up in spring. The autumn colour is a mellow yellow.

Suitable for any garden, it will reach a height of between 3-4 metres.

Delivery season: Crab apple trees are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.
Choosing a size: Small trees are cheaper, easier to handle and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our bareroot trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Features:

  • Height: 3-4m (exceptionally 5m). Weeping habit
  • Soil: Any fertile and well drained
  • Use: Specimen, small garden, large container
  • Colour: Mostly white flowers, touched with pink, in late April-May
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Red Jade Crab Apples

Any well drained, fertile soil. Not recommended for poor, dry soil. Suitable for large containers designed for trees. Full sun or partial shade. Tolerant of pollution.

It is susceptible to scab, which is mostly a problem in the warmer, more humid parts of the South and West.

Did You Know?

This tree's parent is probably Malus Exzellenz Thiel, and it was selected from open pollinated seedlings by George M. Reed at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens in the 1930's. It has been in widespread cultivation since 1953.

Standard trees are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level: their trunk's waist measurement. Unlike sapling trees and hedge plants, standards aren't measured by their height, which will vary quite a bit both between and within species.
So, a 6/8cm standard tree has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8cm and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10cm around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
On average, standard trees are 2-3.5 metres tall when they arrive, but we cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
