A choice selection of two outstanding crab apples to brighten any space in any garden, you'll get sumptuous apple blossom in the spring followed by striking coloured fruits in the autumn.
Chosen by our nursery experts as the best performing crab apples for your garden, you'll receive one bare-root tree of 'Profusion' and one of 'Butterball'- holder of the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit.
With its vibrant copper leaves, cloak of red spring blossom and a mass of autumn fruits, Crab Apple tree 'Profusion', will contrast wonderfully with the voluminous pink flowers and gorgeous yellow-gold fruit of Crab Apple 'Butterball'.
Ideal to plant if you live in a town or have a small garden, both are pollution tolerant and also self-fertile - so while you don't need another crab apple to enjoy a fabulous show of colour throughout the year, the pair together will fruit even more prolifically.
Tolerant of all soil types and needing very little in the way of aftercare ‘Profusion’ and ‘Butterball’ are ideal for beginners and more experienced gardeners alike as maintenance is a breeze - just prune out diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant.
With a slow-growing habit, (reaching approx. 4m in 10 years) these crab apples are best in full sun but will also perform well in partial shade and both are fully winter hardy – so you can just plant them and leave them to get on with it…
Supplied as a pair of bare-root trees (one of each), 1.2m high
