Apple tree 'Red Sentinel' is a decorative crab apple variety with upright deciduous habit. It is a small tree (or a large shrub) that grows up to 6 meters tall forming a 4-5m wide, loose and rounded crown. In the spring it captivates with a multitude of white, individual flowers appearing in May. This variety profusely generates medium-sized apples like the fruit of cherry.
The white melliferous, fragrant flowers of Red Sentinel appear abundantly in May. After flowering, the leaf buds release shiny, pale green leaves that turn beautiful red later in September. In autumn, the trees are hung with numerous, red, shiny, small apples that will delight your garden. The flowers attract bees and butterflies, which makes it suitable for a wildlife garden.
Red Sentinel can easily grow in average soils with low maintenance. However, it thrives better in a fertile, well-drained soil. The tree should be planted in full sun or partial shade.
Generally, it does not require pruning. You can remove any dead or damaged twigs and prune only to correct and improve the shape of the crown. It is completely resistant to frost.
Green leaves of Malus Red Sentinel and its bright red fruits create a stunning colour contrast. It blends in nicely with the estate greenery, home gardens and in urban areas, planted as a single specimen or in groups. It will decorate the green belt outside the fence of any property.
