The Indian Magic Crabapple tree (Malus 'Indian Magic') is a gorgeous tree that has an open and rounded crown shape with upright branches. The mauve pink single flowers smother the tree, creating a beautiful picture for your front yard!

The mystical flowers bloom in mid spring starting with dark red buds. They grow to a mix of deep pink and mauve colors. These colors look phenomenal against the green foliage.

This is a smaller tree, being 15-20 feet in height. It is the perfect accent to any small yard! The crown shape of the tree makes it look tall and wide, even though it is a small rounded tree in reality.

The Indian Magic tree is pretty magical! The full, green foliage shows off all summer, and finally turns a golden-orange in the fall. Everyone will be astonished by the beautiful colors.

After the eye-catching spring bloom, the glossy bright red fruits will appear that turn reddish orange as the winter comes. They stay strong until spring, unless they are consumed by the feasting birds.

The fruits themselves are adorable! They are half an inch wide and sprout all over the tree.

Use the tree for fruit! Crabapples are edible for humans and animals to enjoy!

#ProPlantTips For Care

Provide your Indian Magic Crabapple Tree with a full sun location or one with partial shade! They like to bask in the sun, but it isn't totally necessary at all hours of the day.

They are also very adaptable to different soil types, but do need well drained soil. Read about well drained soil in our blog post here.

They tolerate a lot of weather from cold winters to hot summers--which makes it a perfect tree for growing zones 4-8. Once your tree is established in its area, it will be tolerant to droughts and frosts.

When first planted, water your tree often--at least once a week. Then, throughout the season, water when the tree needs it.

A great way to see if your tree is thirsty is the finger test. Stick your pointer finger around the base of the tree to feel if the soil is moist or dry.

Add a layer of mulch around the base of the tree so the water is consistent and the roots are protected.

Pruning is needed in the late winter to create the best bloom next spring. Avoid pruning in the spring, as the fresh open cuts can lead to diseases. If you are curious about pruning this tree, read our blog here about pruning fruit trees.

When pruning, it is important to cut any broken or damaged branches off to prevent any weird growth the next spring.

The Indian Magic Crabapple Tree is easy, extremely gorgeous, and enjoyable all year round! Order your Indian Magic Crabapple Tree today!
