The Malus 'Royal Beauty' has a wonderful weeping habit and is ideal for smaller gardens. It brings a true oriental look into your living space with a compact shape and stunning bright colours.
Perfect for all-year round ever-changing interest, in spring your tree will delight with leaves that emerge as a bronzed red colour. The foliage then turns red-purple in summer and offers a final show of bronzed yellow and gold in the autumn. Contrasting with the bronze spring leaves in April and May are masses of deep pink to light purple flowers that hang in pendulous bunches on the branches. The flowers turn into dark red crab apples which remain on the tree well into winter.
The fruits of the Malus 'Royal Beauty' are popular with wildlife, birds and bees and will attract a variety of creatures as the cooler winter season approaches, bringing sound and movement into your winter garden.
Your Weeping Crab Apple Tree is fully hardy and enjoys fertile, well drained and humus-rich soil. Plant in full sun or partial shade. Your tree will reach a height of 2.5m with a spread of 2.5m in a 20 year period. Because it is small with a weeping habit, this tree makes a wonderful statement tree in a small garden and can be used to uplift a dull, limited space.
The fruits are non-edible. It you are looking for a Crab Apple tree with edible fruits try the lovely Malus 'Harry Baker'.
