Tina crab-apple blossom

Malus 'Tina' is a naturally dwarf crab-apple that will reach a mature height of around 1.5m or so. It makes a good feature in a small garden, or as a focal point for an area in a larger garden. It is also a good choice if you need a small crab-apple to grow in a patio container.

The spring blossom is white with golden anthers in the centres. The small autumn fruitlets are bright red.
