Malus ioensis ‘Plena’ 

Also known as Betchels Flowering Crab Apple


A magnificent deciduous tree with broad, pyramid growth.


Soft pink buds open to display huge, double, rosy -pink fragranced blossom, which then fade to white.

Flowers are produced in abundance in mid to late Spring, which can extend the flowering season when paired with the early flowering Crabapples.


The late flowers are also very useful as pollinators for the late flowering Eating Apples.


Flowers are followed by insignificant fruit.


Foliage is bright green through Spring and Summer, turning orange and red in Autumn. The leaves are lobed and the branches have a subtle zig-zag nature.


Tree Size:


Dwarf: Lolipop standard, grafted at 1.2 m high

Tree can be kept to 2 meters in total height.

Must be supported with a stake.



Grafted at 1.5 m or 1.8 m

Will reach a height of 6 meters tall x 4 meters wide.


Crabapples are small trees that are hardy once established. Grow in full sun to part shade.

Will grow well on most soils, but prefers a deep, moist, loamy soil.

Pruning requirements are minimal. Prune in winter to achieve a good shape in the early years.
