Product Description

Malus Red Sentinel is a fruiting Crab Apple tree producing an abundance of stunning red crab apples, that last well into winter.

A tree for all seasons its single white flowers burst forth in April, providing a pleasing continuation of those blossoming spring staples. The leaves follow the flowers, emerging as a coppery red before turning to green.

As summer arrives the bright red crab apples appear and with autumn are present in abundance. These glorious scarlet fruit will then remain well into winter brightening up the bleakest December day.

Malus Red Sentinel will tolerate a range of soil conditions including clay, making it a good choice for gardens with heavy soil, that prevent the use of other similar trees.

Please note: main image is multi stem tree. Trees sold are standard or single stem.
