Recently introduced, this glorious crab apple has dark pink blossom in the spring and the most beautiful wine-red foliage in summer. Its red fruits are small and provide great pollination for other edible varieties nearby.
Wonderful for providing a strong contrast, there are other dark leaved crab apples available but this is one of the best, for its spectacular foliage display. Its leaves are irregular in shape with indented lobes adding to interest.
Malus toringo ‘Scarlet’ thrives in most situations and is a better choice than a flowering cherry where heavy clay soil is an issue.
We recommend rabbit guards for areas where deer and rabbits are present.
Good for wildlife and pollinators.
Mature height: 5-8m
