Malus yunnanensis ‘ Veitchii ’


A beautiful small, deciduous tree with a pyramidal crown.


A rare Malus, not often seen, but valued for its splendid Autumn colour and dense clusters of tiny white, fragrant flowers that look like delicate, snow-white pom-poms. Flowers are followed by small red-purple Crabapples.


New foliage is tinged with bronze, aging to dark green. Leaves are shallowly lobed, and have a heart shaped base. Autumn colours are striking, and range from yellow-orange, and purple to scarlet-red.


Tree Size:


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


Semi-Dwarf: 6 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.


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