This small tree, with its finely toother leaves, was selected in the Netherlands in the 1970's.
This small tree, with its finely toothed leaves, was selected by the Experimental Station at Boskoop in the Netherlands in the 1970s and named in 1980.
It forms a broader crown than Robin Hill and is less tall making it a better choice for verges and gardens that it is for streets.
It has abundant white flowers in spring and excellent red autumn colour.
It does best in moist, well drained, lime free soils and is remarkably resistant to fire blight.
It won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002 and remains a great choice for any garden. Sometimes grown as a bushy shrub, we train ours to tree form with a 1.8m clear stem and well defined central leader.
Mature height: 5-10m
