Malus 'Barbara'

Crab Apple

Description: Pretty bright pink flowers emerge alongside dark, copper-coloured leaves. The leaves turn light copper, then to green over the summer, contrasting with the small dark purple fruits in autumn.

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.

Height and Spread (after 10 years): 3.5m x 2m
