Malus ‘tschonoskii ’


A strongly upright and hardy deciduous tree, useful in narrow spaces. This tree makes a lovely alternative to many ornamental pear trees. Uncommonly seen, grown for its unique foliage.


Silvery-green new foliage, and dark green summer foliage gives way to a spectacular display of oranges and reds in Autumn. Arguably the best Crabapple for Autumn colour.


Flowers are sparse small, single, white blooms in Spring and are followed by small red Crabapples.


Tree Size:


Dwarf: Approximately 2 m tall x 1 m wide 


Semi-dwarf: 7 m tall x 4 m wide


Crabapples 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.
