Malus Floribunda

Japanese crab apple Malus floribunda
Position: full sun or partial shade
Soil: fertile well-drained soil

Glorious pale pink flowers open from red buds in mid and late spring smothering the tree in a foam of blossom and concealing the small bright green leaves. The small pea-like golden-yellow fruit often persist into winter. This Japanese crab apple is dense and spreading in habit and makes a lovely ornamental tree for a sunny urban site. The long-lasting fruit provide a valuable source of winter food for wildlife.
