The Japanese Crab Apple is a breathtaking deciduous tree known for its stunning appearance. It forms a wide and rounded canopy with densely-branched foliage. During mid-spring, you'll witness a magnificent display of fragrant pale pink blossoms that emerge from vibrant red buds and gradually transition to a sparkling white shade.
Malus floribunda has a graceful, semi-weeping form and spreads out as it grows. Its leaves are typically ovate and dark green, reaching up to 3 inches in length. After the beautiful blooms, small fruits appear, about half an inch in size, with rosy red cheeks, its main identification feature. The buds turn into lovely pink flowers that gradually fade to white. These flowers then give way to cherry-sized red fruits. While this tree can thrive in various types of soil, it can be even more stunning if nourished with peat and compost.
