£16.99 each

  • Will flower well in full sun
  • Attracts Bees

Malus Royalty is a glorious purple-leaved crab apple tree. This very ornamental tree is perfect for a small garden. Tolerant of pollution and happy in most soil types including clay; Malus Royalty will thrive in city gardens but give it a sunny position to encourage the best display of blossom.

Malus Royalty has deep crimson-magenta flowers in spring that are followed by small, deep red-purple fruits that ripen to black, it is an ideal tree for attracting wildlife and these fruits will  feed the birds through winter.  This ornamental tree is attractive throughout the year; in autumn the purple leaves turn red before falling.

Crab apple trees belong to the malus family, and they are often good pollinators for domestic apple trees (Malus domestica).

If it is not possible to plant because soil is waterlogged or frozen keep the trees somewhere frost free and airy. Keep the roots just moist by storing them in damp compost or if outside conditions allow, heel the trees in to a patch of bare ground until you’re ready to plant them into their permanent positions.
