The evolving colour palette of Malus ‘Evereste’
23 Apr 2021
Malus ‘Evereste’ is an incredible variety of crabapple which provides year-round interest here in The Hepworth Wakefield Garden.
In spring the leaves open first, followed by pink buds which uncurl to reveal white blossom flowers, completely covering these small trees.
The flowers magically fade from pink to white and after pollination the base of the flower swells and becomes the waxy scarlet crabapples, which remain on the tree like little baubles all winter long. This provides a vital food resource for our birds when the ground is frozen in winter.
With year-round appeal and a relatively upright habit Malus ‘Evereste’ is a great tree for home gardens.
