Malus Coccinella Courtarou Pleached Crab Apple Tree
Malus Coccinella Courtarou is a relatively recent variety of ornamental crab apple trees. It has already garnered interest for its exceptionally attractive display of deep pink blossoms. This tree has been trained as a pleached tree - a square crown on a bamboo frame on top of a long clear stem. 

In April, this deciduous tree is completely enveloped in masses of vivid magenta flowers, attracting many pollinators. While the impressive display of spring flowers is certainly the most appealing quality of the Malus Coccinella Courtarou, it is certainly not its only one. This cultivar boasts bronze-green foliage that turns to burgundy as the summer ends and small vivid red fruits that follow the flowers and stay on the bare branches well into the winter.

When left to its own devices, this tree has a free-flowering habit and semi-spreading shape. However, pleached Malus Coccinella is trained to display a square crown above a completely bare trunk. To achieve this traditional look, we start training the tree while it is still young and pliable, with bamboo frames that shape the crown. 

Height and Spread of Malus Coccinella Courtarou Pleached Crab Apple Tree
In pleached form, Malus Coccinella is a compact tree. The height of the trunks is usually 2 metres tall excluding the pot and with a characteristic square crown raised above the trunk. Pleached Malus Coccinella is suitable for small and large gardens alike, thanks to its elegant form.

How Hardy is Malus Coccinella Courtarou Pleached Crab Apple Tree
Like all crab apple trees, Malus Coccinella is also robust and tough. It can withstand sub-zero temperatures and it is quite resilient. This cultivar is fully hardy in all areas of the United Kingdom.

How To Use Malus Coccinella Courtarou Pleached Crab Apple Tree
The visual interest of Malus Coccinella Courtarou as a Pleached Tree is impressive: Use pleached Malus Coccinella to line walkways, or as above-fence screening that will offer privacy and heighten the vertical border between you and the neighbouring property. And for bold and contrasting display, you can use this flowering deciduous tree as a stilted hedge with an evergreen hedging such as yew at its base.

How To Care For Malus Coccinella Courtarou Pleached Crab Apple Tree
For best results, plant this flowering tree in full sun or partial shade in a sheltered spot, and in moist but well-drained soil.
Crab apple trees are practically maintenance-free. Similarly, pleached Malus Coccinella does not need much fussing about to stay in top form. A trim once or twice a year will ensure that it stays tidy and neat and maintains its pleached shape.
