Crab Apple - Royalty

Striking crab apple grown for its flower and foliage. In spring smothered in rich velvety wine-red blossom, the glossy deep purple foliage is outstanding throughout summer. Slow-growing, ideal for a smaller garden.

Size after 10 years:
approximately 4m (13ft) tall by 3m (10ft) across

Pollination: This variety is pollinated easily.

All our crab-apple trees are grown on a semi-dwarfing virus free stock and are ideal for the average garden.

Crab-apples need a sunny site and neutral soil to perform well, a pH of 6.5 - 7.5 is ideal.
