Malus or flowering crab is a small to medium sized tree grown for a profusion of blossom in the early Spring and brightly coloured fruits that appear in the Autumn. If Spring blossom is the primary requirement then consider malus profusion which, as the name suggests, has a profusion of wine red flowers that are slightly fragrant. Alternatively if Autumn fruits are top priority then consider malus john downie which has white flowers in Spring and bright orange and red Autumn fruits. Malus will tolerate most soil conditions but prefers a sunny site.
