Malus mokum is a lovely, dark flowering Crab Apple originating from Holland.
It is a stunning small tree which is often overlooked for the more well-known varieties. This lovely Crab Apple has small leaves that emerge a dark, wine red colour along with rosy-red flowers that appear in the late spring.
The fruits develop over the summer time and are small and deep red in colour which contrasts nicely with the leaves which fade to green over time before turning yellow before falling.
Malus mokum forms an oval headed tree at maturity and like most Crab Apples will perform well in most soils, including heavy clay.
If you are looking for a flowering tree and have a heavy clay soil, it is always best to choose a Crab apple over the more well-known Prunus (Cherry blossom) trees as they will tolerate these conditions far more readily.
Malus mokum is a great selection to bring some darker red/burgundy colour in spring and works well with vivid greens for contrast.
If you live in an area prone to rabbits or deer then we recommend rabbit guards for these trees.
