An unusual small tree, Malus 'Admiration' has masses of attractive white and pale pink flowers in Spring, followed by small orange-red fruit in late summer and autumn. Malus 'Admiration' is compact and upright when young, spreading a little once established.
Significantly more slow growing than the other Malus listed here and not for instant gratification! It usually takes some years to settle down and start filling out but it is worth the long wait as very attractive once established. Also develops a lovely architectural habit when grown as a multi-stemmed specimen.
