Crab Apple Bonsai Flowering Bonsai Tree - Large Trunk
Malus pumila
The crab apple just has to be one of the most popular flowering species in bonsai cultivation. Spectacular and reliable flowering (small pink/white delicately scented) and beautiful autumn fruit (red apples the size of marbles). Very hardy but appreciates a little protection from hot summer sun. In summer remove overly large leaves at any time. Fertilize from mid-summer with 0-10-10 Nitrogen free fertiliser. The winter image can be tidied up once the leaves have dropped but take care not to remove too many of the large fat buds, those make the flowers. Re-pot every 3-4 years in a good moisture holding compost like our No1 or Kaizen Bonsai No2 Bonsai Soil Mix. The species is fully frost hardy and needs no winter protection.

A beautiful big crab apple with well developed basic branch structure. A few pruning scars and some carving is required and a little wire can improve the branch placement then the tree needs the ramification building. This one is going to be a show winner in the right hands. We won't be seeing a better crab apple any time soon. If you think the price is high take a closer look at the pictures, this is a steal !
