Desired quantity:    

A rare and very distinctive flowering crab apple variety, Guardsman (Malus trilobata 'Guardsman') hails from the Mediterranean and north-East Greece.  It is a form of the unusual M. trilobata species.  This tree has a stiffly erect form with pretty, deeply lobed maple-like leaves which turn good shades of scarlet-crimson in autumn. The white flowers are large and appear late in June. Small moss green fruits. 

A small height tree, so expect a height of up to 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years. 

This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 1.7 metres in a 12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock. 

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Crab Apple Trees Listed As Patio

Any Crab apple tree listed as suitable for patio growing means that it has been grafted onto an M27 rootstock giving it an ultimate height of around 1.5 metres. The standard 12 Litre options are usually grafted onto MM106 rootstock and ultimate heights are determined be each species. Contact us first if rootstocks are important to you.
