Evereste crab apple trees

Malus

Malus Evereste is one of the most popular crab-apple trees and a good choice if you want a medium-large flowering tree for the garden.

The plain white spring blossom is borne in great profusion - often in the first spring after planting.

The pretty small crab-apple fruitlets appear in the autumn and have an attractive flushed orange colour. They remain on the tree well into December, providing interest long after the leaves have fallen.
