Malus Toringo Scarlett or Crab Apple Scarlett
Malus Scarlett is a gorgeous small deciduous fruit tree best known for its colourful foliage and lovely spring flowers.
Scarlett is one of the best bronze-leaved ornamental crab-apple varieties. The leaves emerge purple in the spring, and the young foliage beautifully complements the rich pink, scented blossom. The aroma of the small 5-petal flowers, borne in masses on the tree’s arching branches, attracts pollinators so much it earned Crab Apple Scarlett the RHS Perfect for Pollinators badge. As the spring passes, the flowers turn to small purple fruit that will persist on the tree for seasons to come.
While it is undeniable that Malus Scarlet is stunning in the spring, its autumn colours do not disappoint, either. The foliage changes from the usual green to vibrant hues of orange and red. Malus Toringo Scarlett retains its foliage much longer than other varieties, so the vivid leaves will offer interest well into November.
