Red Obelisk (Malus 'Red Obelisk') was first introduced in Belgium.  A  nice, compact upright tree with pink buds opening white and followed by attractive, conical, red fruits. Foliage is purplish-brown at first, later becoming dark green. Red Obelisk apples are good for crab apple jelly.

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 1.2 and 2.4 metres in a 5-12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock. 

Malus Red Obelisk Options 

100-180cm :Usually supplied in a 5-10 litre pot and is around 2-3 years old
180-240cm :Usually supplied in a 10-20 litre pot and is around 3-4 years old

We deliberately use the vague description of around "x" amount of years old because freak weather can severely affect growth rates.  

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.

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. 

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. 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. 

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.
