A prolific bloomer, Malus ioensis 'Prince Georges' is an upright, dense, deciduous tree of rounded form. Opening from deep rose-pink buds, masses of delightfully fragrant, pale pink, double flowers, 2 in. across (5 cm), packed with up to 60 petals appear in late spring, when its fresh foliage has broken dormancy. Draped in clusters along the ascending branches, they provide a dramatic display. This crabapple does not bear fruit. The foliage of green leaves with serrated margins turns to a rich dark red and orange color in the fall. A magnificent crabapple as a specimen tree, even for small gardens, that is mildly subject to scab and fireblight.
- Grows up to 10-15 ft. tall and wide (300-450 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.
