Malus - expert advice on choosing
its tree ordering time again, and i am compiling a list.
I have a nice space thats a bit of a focal point on arriving at the house and i would like a stunning all rounder of a tree.
I have decided on crabapple, and definitely a DARK pink flower. There is a bewildering number available. Even in limiting myself to what my local shop can order, there are lots.
I like Royalty but there seem to be concerns about disease resistance. Also like rudolph, and directeur moerland (?) and well...lots more. maybe they all look good on the internet?
Any advice? Also, i was initially thinking about a close grouping of 3, but have read crabapples do not like anything close.
