Malus brevipes Wedding Bouquet

  • Flower colour: White
  • Leaf colour: Green
  • Growth habit: Upright
  • Fruit colour: Red - dark

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.

We may also have 1-year bare-root trees of this variety - they are not shown here.

Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches. The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
