Malus floribunda - Japanese Crab Apple tree 6-8cm 2-2.5m

Malus floribunda is a small deciduous tree with a rounded to spreading habit. This crab has masses of red buds which open to white or pink flushed white flowers in mid to late spring. These are followed by small yellow fruits or crabs approx 2cm diameter. The oval dark green leaves are sometimes lobed and turn yellow in autumn.

Grows to around 5-7m tall.

Malus floribunda trees are ideal for small gardens either grown as a specimen or incorporated into a large mixed border but work equally as well in parks and on verges.

Can be grown in most soils that are moist but well-draining, well suited to clay, loamy and sandy soils, avoid sites that become waterlogged. Likes full sun to partial shade.
