Crab Apple - Malus trilobata
Malus trilobata is a rare upright Crab Apple which is perfect for restricted spaces.
This pretty tree has unique bright green leaves which are deeply lobed and a burgundy red in the autumn time. The large white flowers appear in the spring and are followed by green fruits in the autumn.
The fruits are sometimes flushed red and, being a Mediterranean tree, the fruits tend to only appear following a hot summer. Malus trilobata is a distinct Malus which is sometimes classed as a separate genus (Eriolobus), however at Barcham we keep it under the Malus section.
This small tree is wonderfully upright and maintains a perfectly symmetrical crown into maturity. This tough contender will tolerate most soil types and like other Malus is a good choice for clay soils.
This small and compact tree is the perfect choice where space is at premium and offers architectural structure and uniformity in conjunction with an array of ornamental qualities. It is a great choice for planting in a border or in multiples as a feature and is a great candidate for uplighting.
Mature height: 5-7m
