Crab Apple (Malus) 'Red Sentinel'
A highly decorative crab apple variety that produces showy, sweetly scented white flowers in spring followed by dense clusters of scarlet red fruits that persist well into winter and long after the leaves have fallen.
‘Red Sentinel’ can be used in the kitchen to make crab apple jelly but as it holds it fruit for longer than many other crab apple varieties, is perfect for creating a stunning focal point in the garden during winter, as well as being a useful source of food for birds. It has excellent disease resistance and holds the prestigious ‘RHS Award of Garden Merit’. Highly recommended.
'Red Sentinel' is grafted on to a MM106 rootstock and will reach an eventual height and spread of 3.6-5.6m (12-18ft).
Crab apple trees are available for delivery from late November until late March.
Please remember that fruit trees do require staking for the first few years of their life, we also strongly recommend the use of rootgrow™ when planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment.
