Top-grafted at 45cm to form a lollipop-shaped plant, this low-growing crab apple is perfect for pots or borders, where it will offer a long season of colour and interest. In mid- to late spring the crown of the plant is studded with red buds, which go on to open to white flowers. Then, towards the end of summer, small yellow fruits appear and these not only look good, but they will also help attract birds to the garden. Finally, at the tail end of the season, the normally green leaves turn bright yellow shades before they drop for winter. It's a hard-working addition to the patio or a smaller garden.

  • Garden care:
    When planting your flowering crab, prepare a hole up to three times the diameter of its root system. Fork over the base of the pit in readiness, incorporating plenty of organic matter into the backfill and planting hole. Avoiding frozen and waterlogged soil, trees should be planted out as they arrive. If you've ordered a bare root tree, soak the roots in a bucket of water for half an hour prior to planting, or if this is not possible, they can be heeled in temporarily, covering their roots with soil, or potted up. Choose a sheltered spot to protect emerging blossom. Remove dead, diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant during the winter months.
