Malus this group of trees is looking at their best at this time of year, not only are they full of beautifully coloured fruit, ready to pick and make into amazing jelly, but the foliage is begging to turn colour so we have a riot of truly vibrant leaves, which brings a new life to the autumn garden scene. And all of this after we have had an outstanding springtime display of white, pink and red flowers. A real tree for all seasons.
