Crab Apple, Fowering Malus ‘Profusion Improved’


This Flowering Crab Apple boasts coppery red foliage when young which turns a dark forest green before adopting hues of yellow/bronze in the autumn.

Both the flowers and fruit produced by this tree are a deep, purple wine (almost red) colour.

The flowers are produced in ‘profusion’ from April and followed by the small purple crabs which, although not suited to culinary use, are very popular amongst wildlife, proving to be a favourite with bees.
