Malus ‘Marble’® Nuvar Crab Apple

Description: Malus 'Marble' is a small deciduous tree with attractive single white flowers in spring, amid the green foliage that turns pretty autumn shades as the seasons change. Beginning green-yellow, the crab apples transform into a glowing vibrant pink hue, before fading slightly to feature spectacular pink and yellow marbling over the surface.

History: Developed by John Breach, Kent in the 1970s.
