Beautiful deciduous tree. Profusion of fragrant cup-shaped white flowers before leaves appear in the spring. Grow in full sun and fertile, moist but well drained soil. Fully hardy. Potential height quite substantial, but 5-6m most probably in Norfolk.
Naturally dwarf and upright ornamental tree. Dense clusters of waxy white flowers in late spring emerge from deep carmine red buds, making this an excellent pollinator for apple trees.. Masses of bronze-red fruits persist well into winter, invaluable for wildlife or perhaps winter flower-arrangements. H: 2.5m
A top grafted form with a mass of warm double pink blossom in spring and orange-red fruits in autumn. Versatile and well suited to small gardens. Prefers full sun; fully hardy. H: probably no more than 2m in this form.
Lovely unusual crab apple, producing small, rose-hipped shaped, yellow-lemon fruit in the autumn and often staying on the tree until Christmas. The tree is a wonderful spreading specimen and is one of the best persistent yellow crabs of which there are few. April blossom is equally beautiful for a natural setting. H:4m after 10 years. Hardy.
Outstanding small, compact ornamental tree. In spring, pink-tinged buds open to billowing masses of snow-white flowers which honey bees love. Hundreds of small golden--red fruits richly decorate the tree from summer and into the autumn. The fruit remain in excellent condition until deep winter when, as they start to soften, flocks of birds including fieldfares, thrushes and blackbirds will enjoy a welcome feast. Fully hardy. H: around 5m
A compact ornamental tree, with lovely scented white 'apple blossom' flowers and large attractive red fruits which persist well into autumn, and which are ideal for making crab apple jelly. Best in full sun and moist but well drained rich soil. Fully hardy. H:4-5m
