Also known as the Japanese Crab, Malus floribunda is a species of crab-apple which produces a very attractive spreading tree.
The blossom is pink/white and, as the Latin name suggests, particularly abundant. Flowering is relatively early in the blossom season.
The yellow fruits are also borne in considerable quantities, and although not as dramatic as the spring blossom display, are a useful resource for birds.

Malus floribunda originates from Japan and was brought to the west in the mid 19th century, a period when European and American plant enthusiasts first became aware of the huge diversity of flowering trees to be found in east Asia.
This species has been used in a number of breeding programmes to produce more disease-resistant apple varieties, on account of its good resistance to the apple disease scab.
