Noted for its wonderful fruit and fall color, Malus 'Indian Magic' is an upright, broad-rounded deciduous tree with a long season of interest. Opening from dark red buds, masses of fragrant, pink, single flowers appear in mid spring, just as the foliage is unfolding. Draped in clusters along the branches, they provide a truly spectacular display. The flowers are followed by abundant glossy, bright red fruits, 1/2 in. (1.2 cm), that change to golden orange and persist until spring if not devored by hungry birds. The foliage of pointy deep green leaves turns brilliant golden orange in fall, before shedding to the ground. A beautiful small ornamental tree for small gardens.
- Grows up to 15-20 ft. tall and wide (4-6 m).
- 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.
