Lovely in bloom and form, Malus 'Coralburst' is a compact deciduous tree forming a very dense, symmetrically rounded head with tiny lush green leaves. Opening from coral-pink buds, masses of fragrant, semi-double, pink blossoms appear in mid spring. They are followed by abundant, bronze fruits, 1/2 in. (1.2 cm), that persist on the tree into late fall and are attractive to birds. The small stature of this elegant crabapple makes it a perfect ornamental choice for the garden, including small gardens. Extremely hardy and disease free-especially to apple scab.
- Grows up to 8-10 ft. tall (240-300 cm) and 12-15 ft. wide (360-450 cm).
- A full sun lover, this tree is easily grown in moderately fertile, well-drained soils. Once established, it is drought tolerant.
- Perfect as specimen plant, in city gardens or cottage gardens.
- Require only minimal pruning in late winter, to remove damaged, diseased or misplaced growth.
