Indian Magic is classic crab-apple, which looks good all year round.

In spring the long-lasting blossom is a very pretty solid dusky pink, contrasting with the small green-bronze leaves.

In autumn the tree is clothed in tiny berry-like fruits which are an almost fluorescent pink/orange colour on dark November days - and particularly popular with blackbirds. In a good autumn (with sunny days and cold nights) the leaves will be an attractive orange-red too.

The tree grows with a pleasing upright-spreading shape which makes it particularly suitable as a feature tree.

How to grow

Indian Magic is easy to grow, with good all-round disease-resistance. It is also very cold-hardy, able to withstand temperatures well below those normally experienced in the UK.
