Profusion Improved (Malus x moerlandsii 'Profusion Imporved') is an improved, more disease resistant form of profusion.  A fast growing crab apple variety, it is noted for its delightful wine-red flowers.  Its young, copper to crimson coloured leaves turns a bronzish-green colour as the season progresses.  In turn, the rich, slightly fragrant, purple flowers, change to pink as the seasons change.  The crab apples from this tree are small and a pretty blood-red colour. 

Profusion Improved is supplied at of height of between 1.5 to 2.0 metres in a 12 litre container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

Our Malus Profusion Improved Crab apple is usually grafted onto a MM106 (for those "in the know") but sometimes we have the M27 option available.  MM106 usually grows to around 3-4m and M27 should be 2-3m.

I recently ordered a Crab Apple tree as a memorial for our late mother...I would like to say how delighted I was with the service & speedy delivery of said tree, I was delighted with the tree size & quality . Thank you 0617 

Yes thank you Profusion Crab Apple tree and wisteria arrived in good order.  Boy was is well packaged!  I'm not complaining though as everything was in perfect condition.  I'm only 5ft so ended up almost in the box whilst struggling to get them out, but worth it to have no damage whatsoever.  They are all planted now and looking good, I can't wait for spring.  Will definitely be back as I need a nice small weeping type tree to replace one near my pond. Thank you again - Excellent service xxxxx  Patsy Mudie  1013

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.

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.

UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.

Climate Change
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy. 

Crab Apple Trees Listed As Patio
Any Crab apple tree listed as suitable for patio growing means that it has most likely been grafted onto an M27 rootstock giving it an ultimate height of around 1.5 metres. 

Crab Apple Disease Resistance
Crab apple trees are generally resistant to disease but those that seem to be considerably less prone to problems are Admiration, Pink Glow, Wedding Bouquet, ButterBall, Cardinal, Comtesa De Paris, Elk River, Coralburst, Donald Wyman, Golden Gem, Gorgeous, Indian Magic, Jelly King, Louisa, Prairie Fire, Rudolf, Sun Rival, Tina, Scarlett, Transitoria, Guardsman and White Star.

Crab Apple Pollinators
Crab apples have long flowering periods which makes them very useful as pollination partners. Many commercial orchards inter-plant crab apples with normal apple trees to increase fruit yield. A crab apple is self fertile and will set fruit without the need of another apple tree nearby. 

Crab Apple Drought Resistance
Generally speaking, Crab Apples tolerate drought reasonably well. 

Sun Or Shade For Crab Apples 
For best results from the flowers and fruits, a full sun position is preferred however light shade is acceptable. Excessive shade will lead to less flowers and fruits, a more open canopy and problems with Powdery Mildew. Shade and poor drainage is a good combination for bacterial and fungal issues. 

Crab Apple Suckering
If your Crab Apple has been grafted (many are) then you may experience small green shoots growing out the side of the tree below the graft point (around 10-30cm above ground) Remove these by rubbing your hand across the bark or snapping off. These will not grow as the original tree you purchased.

Crab Apples With Long Lasting Fruits
For those wishing to feed the local wildlife well into Autumn and Winter, consider purchasing Comtessa De Paris , Red Sentinel and Toringo Scarlet. Other crab apple trees with almost as long lasting fruits include Admiration, Evereste, Wedding Bouquet and Rudolph
