Malus Profusion crab apple trees

  • Pick: Early-season

Malus Profusion is an ornamental crab apple which makes a compact tree.

As the name suggests, it flowers profusely, with an abundance of crimson pink blossom.

The fruits are dark red and persist on the tree into late autumn, hanging in clusters like cherries. They are popular with birds, and also have some culinary value, although they are very small.

Some of our trees are Malus Profusion Improved - as the name suggests this is an improved strain, which has better disease resistance and a more lobed leaf shape.

Pollination guide for Malus Profusion

Malus Profusion is in flowering group 2. Malus Profusion is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.

Like most crab-apples it blooms over a long period and is therefore a good pollinator for other apple and cider-apple varieties flowering at the same time.
