Also known as Purple Weeping Crab Apple or Crab Apple Royal Beauty, this variety is best known for its abundance of gorgeous purple blossoms that adorn its elegant weeping branches in April and May. The foliage is also quite decorative, starting out purplish-bronze only to mature to a deep purplish-red colour with a hint of green in the summer before fading to yellow and bronze tones in the autumn. After flowering, the fruits appear and are ovoid in shape and dark red in colour. The fruits are appealing to birds which can feast on them well into the winter season.
