Malus 'Donald Wyman' is a typical white-flowered crab-apple, which grows into a reasonably large spreading tree, with good presence.
This variety is particularly notable for its tiny red fruitlets, which are very persistent, hanging on the tree well into the winter.
In a good autumn (with sunny days and cold nights) the leaves take on yellow-orange tints.

This variety was discovered as a chance seedling growing at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University in the USA in the 1950s. It was named after Donald Wyman, a horticulturalist who worked there.
