Buy Malus Coralburst ('Coralcole') crab apple: Gives a burst of colour in spring

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A very pretty dwarf crab apple, that makes an excellent addition to smaller gardens. In spring, it produces a mass of coral pink buds which burst open to double rose-pink flowers giving a delightful two-tone effect just as the lush green leaves start to appear. From late summer, these are followed by bronze fruits, which remain until well into winter.

    The crown of this small tree has been grafted onto the upright stem of the rootstock at a height of 45cm, which will limit the eventual height. Perfect for a small garden or growing in a large pot.

  • 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.

Hello Please can you confirm which type of dwarfing rootstock is used for this tree? Thanks

Colin

Unfortunately we do not have much information on rootstocks for the ornamentals, however the most likely rootstock would be M27.

When should this dwarf crabapple be planted.

Hello there As a general rule fully hardy plants that are grown in containers such as this can be planted at any time of year as long as the soil isn't frozen solid. The best times are in the autumn when the soil is still warm enough to encourage root growth but the plant isn't in active growth, or the spring before the temperatures start to rise. So weather permitting, and as long as the ground isn't waterlogged you can plant now. If we are having a cold snap you can still keep this plant out in the garden, in a sheltered spot where it won't be blown over and it should be fine.
