Malus robusta Red Sentinel is one of the best crab apple trees. Sometimes known as the Siberian crab this ornamental tree earns its keep in any garden; with masses of pinkish-white spring blossom followed by very showy cherry-red crab apples. The fruits stay on the tree for a long time and they can be made into a tasty crab apple jelly or left on the tree as a feast for the birds.
This ornamental apple tree has something to offer 12 months of the year. A beautiful silhouette in winter, blossoms in spring and summer and gorgeous fruit in autumn.
Malus Red Sentinel also has brilliant autumn colour with the leaves turning shades of gold before they fall. Tolerant of pollution and happy in most soil types including clay; Malus Red Sentinel will thrive in city gardens; just give it a sunny position to encourage the best display of blossom.
This tree has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit as an excellent garden tree.
