Malus 'Comtesse De Paris'

This Malus Tree, more commonly known as a Flowering Crab Apple, offers delicate, white blossom in spring amongst mid-green foliage, followed by an abundance of glossy, lemon yellow fruits in the autumn that can often last until after Christmas.
It's a small, deciduous tree, densely branching, with a rounded habit and at maturity will eventually reach a height and spread of about 4 x 3 metres. Like other Malus, it is happiest in a sunny or partially shaded situation but can tolerate any soil type.
