Malus purpurea ‘Lemoinei’

 

A hardy, deciduous tree with a compact round shape at maturity.

 

Sought after for its outstanding colour, this is arguably the best of the red-flowering Crabapples.

 

Flowers emerge from dark red buds in late Spring and are large, single to semi-double blooms with a rich red-pink colour that looks striking against the new purple foliage. Older trees will flower heavily, but will take a few years to flower well. Flowers hold their colour well.

 

New foliage emerges a glossy purple, hardening off to a deep purple-green. Autumn colours are shades of yellow and red.

 

Flowers are followed by medium sized purple Crabapples with sweet-tart taste.

 

Tree Size:

 

Dwarf: Can be kept to 2 m high, but must be supported with a stake.

 

Semi-dwarfing: 6 m tall x 6 m 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. Self-fertile.
