Malus 'Gorgeous' is one of the decorative apple varieties from New Zealand. It is a large shrub or a small tree that has a loose upright habit, reaches up to 6m in height and forms a round crown. The tree is blessed with white and pink flowers in abundance. The Gorgeous belongs to the very productive varieties and bears shiny red ornamental fruits that are excellent for jelly.
The oval leaves of Gorgeous crab apple tree appear fresh green on overhanging lateral branches and turn yellow in autumn, perfect for decoration in an autumn garden. The rich white flowers (3.5 - 4 cm diameter) bloom in May. Flowering is followed by shiny red apple fruits, which are edible but mostly used in making jellies.
Malus Gorgeous is completely undemanding and tolerant in terms of soil. It grows well on average garden soils, but also tolerates heavy and loamy soils. The substrate should be moderately moist and the plant the tree in a full sunny or partially shaded position. It is best to plant it individually in a larger space, both in home gardens and parks.
Gorgeous is a bit prone to scab. It is frost hardy and does not demand much pruning. Simply cut back the long shoots in spring and/or summer to preserve the shape of the tree.
This Malus variety will attract many bees and butterflies to your garden, adding the embrace of nature. It is most suitable in parks, theme parks, roof gardens, large gardens, small gardens and courtyard gardens.
