Cinderella® Dwarf Crabapple

Malus x 'Cinzam'

Exceptional, extremely dwarf flowering crabapple with a compact, upright habit. Just the right size for a container patio tree or main feature in smaller landscapes. New foliage emerges bright green, then red buds open to reveal dazzling white spring flowers, yielding small but showy golden autumn fruit. Beautiful yellow fall color. Deciduous.
