A popular and handsome crab apple growing into a small, upright tree with masses of white flowers in late spring followed by large red and yellow fruit in autumn, lasting into winter. The flowers are pink in bud opening to white and the summer foliage is mid green with orange and purple autumn tints before the leaves fall.

The fruit can be used to make crab apple jelly and this tree is a good pollinator for other nearby apples.
