Malus profusion is a lovely cultivar of Crab Apple with deep, wine red coloured flowers which appear in spring. Initially the flowers are deep wine red in colour, turning a lighter pink over time.
The young foliage emerges copper-crimson turning bronze-green as the summer progresses, The fruits are very small and blood red in colour.
Malus profusion is a small growing tree, reaching between 3-7m in height.

Malus are a great addition to any planting scheme, they make super individual specimens, as well as suitable candidates for avenue planting, where it is possible to match this pink flowering specimen with a white counterpart such as Malus evereste to get the best of both worlds!
If you live in an area prone to rabbits or deer then we recommend rabbit guards for these trees.
