Crab Apple - Malus Rudolph
Malus Rudolph is a tough crab apple with a super rose-pink flower.
This super tree has a glorious display of rose-pink flowers which appear in late spring. The foliage emerges after the flowers and is initially a copper-red in colour, over the summer period it turns to a bronze green, the only remnants of the red being the bright venation of the leaves.
In the autumn time the elongated red fruits emerge as the foliage turns a clear yellow. Malus Rudolph was developed in the 1950’s and is one of Barchams favourite 3 Malus, we have one red, one white and one upright crab we favour; this is the red one!
This small tree is fairly columnar as a young tree however the crown becomes rounder as it matures. Unlike some Malus, this tree is extremely resistant to pests and disease, one of the reasons that we rate it so highly.
This pretty little crab apple is a perfect choice to introduce colour and year round interest for a small garden and makes an attractive small avenue tree, it is sometimes nicely paired up with Malus evereste, as their features nicely complement one another.
