Malus × scheideckeri 'Red Jade' (Crabapple)

Crabapple 'Red Jade', Crab Apple 'Red Jade', Malus 'Red Jade'


An outstanding Crabapple, Malus 'Red Jade' is a small deciduous tree with gracefully weeping branches over a long season of interest. Opening from pink buds, masses of fragrant, white, single flowers appear in mid spring, just as the foliage is unfolding. Draped in clusters along the cascading branches, they provide a lovely display. The flowers are followed by abundant, glossy, bright red fruits, 1/2 in. (1.2 cm), that mature in fall and persist well into winter. Attractive to birds, the fruits may be harvested for jellies. The handsome foliage of glossy, jade green leaves turns yellow in the fall. This flowering crabapple needs room to develop to perfection with its slender weeping branches. Subject to scab, fire blight and powdery mildew in some areas. Good resistance to rust.

  • Grows up to 12-15 ft. tall (360-450 cm) and 15-20 ft. wide (450-600 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.
