Malus ‘Royalty’ (Flowering Crabapple)


The velvety, reddish colour of the Malus Royalty flowers that appear in April-May make a wonderful contrast to the dramatic dark purple, almost black foliage that turns a vivid red in the autumn.

A small, rounded tree, this Purple Flowering Crab Apple, as it is more commonly known, will grow to about 4 x 3 metres in 20 years making it an ideal choice for the smaller garden.
