    A charming tree with a graceful habit, 'Louisa' has been heralded as one of the best weeping forms available. When laden with its pink flowers, which open from rose-coloured buds in late spring, it is nothing less than dazzling - and later the yellow crab apples that form, provide another good show, turning shades of orange as they age.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Removed dead, diseased and crossing branches while the tree is dormant.
