Thornhayes Tansy

Malus transitoria

Thornhayes Tansy is a form of Malus transitoria, known as the cut-leaf crab-apple on account of the shape of its leaves.

The leaves turn a golden orange colour in the autumn, a particularly attractive trait of Malus transitoria.

The tree grows in an upright spreading form.
