Tree Malus ioensis 'plena' Iowa Crab Apple

 

 

 

 
Description Hardy and highly ornamental, this tree is a beautiful specimen, producing masses of gorgeous, fragrant double pink spring blossoms. Small, rounded purple fruits follow the flowers, accompanied by soft, narrow foliage with serrated margins which form a weeping habit. In autumn, the leaves colour up to a combination of burnt orange and reds before falling. Growing to only 6m in ideal conditions, it makes a fabulous small feature tree in landscapes where space is limited.
