A fine white-flowering crabapple, Malus 'White Angel' is a compact, upright, vase-shaped, deciduous tree of great beauty. Opening from pink buds, masses of fragrant, pure white flowers appear in mid spring. Draped in clusters along the branches, they are truly a sight to behold. The pretty blossoms are followed by abundant, glossy red fruits, 1/2 in. (1.2 cm), that mature in fall and persist into winter - if birds do not feast on them. Equally attractive, the foliage of oval dark green leaves turns golden-yellow in the fall. A splendid ornamental tree for the landscape with good disease resistance to apple scab, rusts, leaf spot and powdery mildew. Moderate resistance to fireblight.
- Grows up to 20-30 ft. tall and wide (6-9 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.
