Snowcloud is aptly named for its profusion of semi-double flowers. These emerge from pink buds, but turn a bright snow white as they open. Being semi-double, there are more petals than is usual for crab-apples, and the flowers are also larger than average, giving a more intense blossom display.
The leaves are green, but with a bronze tint which is most noticeable in spring and again in the autumn when they take on bronze / yellow tints.
The fruitlets are small and unusually for a crab apple are few in number - this is not the right crab-apple if you want to make crab-apple jelly.
Snowcloud is cold hardy and a vigorous grower and resistant to scab.
