Malus transitoria is also know as the Cut-leaf Crab, on account of its lobed leaves. It grows with an attractive spreading form.
It features a mass of tiny white star-like flowers in spring, followed by dense clusters of small yellow fruitlets in the autumn.
The autumn leaf colours are particularly pronounced in this species.
