Malus transitoria ‘Schmidtcutleaf’


A hardy, small, deciduous tree with a delicate appearance. Vase shape tree, and spreading with age.


Rich green, deeply cut foliage, gives this crabapple a distinctive and delicate look. Masses of tiny, white, single blooms appear in Spring, followed by attractive tiny golden fruit. Autumn colours are rosy red-oranges and yellows.


Tree Size:


Dwarf: Can be kept to 1.5 m high, but must be supported with a stake.


Semi-dwarf: 5 m tall x 4 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. Prune in winter to achieve a good shape in the early years.


 Crabapples are self-fertile, and make useful pollinators for eating and cooking apples.
