Malus toringo - Japanese Crab Apple

Malus toringo is a small Japanese crab tree with semi weeping branches that add to its unusual attraction. It was first introduced to the UK in 1856.

This pretty Japanese Crap Apple has glossy dark green leaves that are oval and mildly lobed. During the spring the tree is covered in masses of fragrant, bright white flowers that appear from pink buds.

Malus toringo also offers interest through the autumnal months, the glossy dark green leaves turn lemony yellow contrasting the bright yellow orange fruits.

A perfect small multistem tree for the garden, looks great when pruned to an umbrella form.
