Wedding Bouquet

Malus brevipes
Wedding Bouquet has received the RHS Award of Garden Merit

Wedding Bouquet is named for its mass of attractive ivory-white spring blossom.

The tiny berry-like fruits are dark red, and persist (stay on the tree) well into December. The tree is particularly attractive after the leaves have fallen, when the clusters of fruitlets show up brightly against the bare branches.

Wedding Bouquet is a good pollinator for mid and late-season flowering apples and cider apple varieties.

Our two-year old trees should have blossom the spring following planting.
