Crabapple Trees for Sale

Ornamental Malus Varieties in Standard Sizes

Flowering Crab apple trees are some of the most decorative smaller garden trees. They are covered in blossom in shades of white through pink to purple in spring. Foliage ranges from light green to maroon and many varieties colour well in autumn before their leaves fall. Then, on the bare tree, crab apples, like bright marzipan fruits, often hang until after well Christmas.

Browse our other ornamental garden trees.

Most 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.

Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height. Therefore, 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 descriptions.

All our Crab apple trees are covered by our no-quibble Guarantee, which means you can order with complete confidence. Free delivery on orders over £120. Best advice & friendly support throughout.
