Malus 'Candymint' is an attractive small crab-apple tree, with a strongly spreading habit. Although it remains quite low to the ground, it grows vigorously with wide spreading branches.
It is notable for its very intense display of white pink-tinged blossom.
In autumn the leaves turn a light yellow colour, whilst the small dark red fruits persist into early winter - a useful resource for wildlife but too small for human use.
