The Camelot® Crabapple tree, Malus 'Camzam', is a dwarf cultivar that has a rounded shape and thick, leathery, dark green leaves that have a touch of burgundy.
In early spring, red buds open to fragrant white flowers flushed with fuchsia-pink. The 1/2 inch rich burgundy colored fruits ripen in late summer. The small crabapples mature in the fall and may persist into winter. This fruit has a medium texture, is very flavorful, and may be harvested for jellies. Birds are attracted to the fruit as well.
The Camelot® Crabapple tree is best grown in medium moisture, well-drained, acidic loams in full sun, and it does adapt to a wide range of soils. Prune as needed after flowering, but before June. Crabapples require little pruning once established, but in late winter, prune dead, diseased, and broken branches and trim off any sprouts that arise at the base of the tree.
Having good disease resistance and no main insect pests, this Camelot® Crabapple can be successfully planted as a specimen or in small groups. It is a perfect tree for a small space!
