Malus toringo

Crab Apple

Syn : Malus sieboldii

Description: A small, dense, semi-weeping Japanese crab with pink buds opening to masses of small delicate white flowers. The glossy dark green leaves turn lemony yellow in autumn contrasting with the yellow fruits appearing in large bunches.

History: Introduced from Japan in 1856 by Siebold ex De Vriese.

Malus Growing Tips: Crab Apples are self-fertile, and very useful as pollinators for a variety of fruit trees. Full sun or part shade lover, best grown in fertile, moist, deep, loamy soils. Requires minimal pruning in late winter or spring to remove damaged, diseased or misplaced growth.
