Malus ‘Evereste’, commonly known as Evereste Crabapple, is a compact, deciduous ornamental tree that hails from the rose family. Native to Asia and North America, this particular variety has been widely cultivated for its beauty and versatility, making it a popular addition to British gardens.

Evereste Crabapple is a moderate-sized tree that usually grows to a height and spread of 4-8 meters. The tree sports a rounded, spreading crown that is densely packed with ovate, lobed, glossy dark green leaves that turn orange-yellow in the fall, giving it a year-round interest.

One of the striking features of the Evereste Crabapple is its profuse bloom. In spring, the tree bursts into a spectacular display of slightly fragrant, white flowers tinged with pink, providing a feast for the eyes. The flowers are then followed by an abundant crop of orange-red to yellow fruits that persist well into winter, offering additional visual appeal.

As for its growth, Malus ‘Evereste’ has a moderate growth rate, typically reaching its full size within 10-20 years. Its lifespan, like many ornamental trees, is relatively short compared to native British trees, generally between 50 to 80 years.

The tree is hermaphroditic, meaning that it has both male and female reproductive organs. The flowers are pollinated by bees and other insects. Once fertilised, these give way to small apple-like fruits or ‘pomes’.

The Evereste Crabapple tree stands apart from other trees found in England due to its small size, year-round interest, and its abundant, long-lasting fruits. Unlike most native trees, which are often large and best suited to woodland or parkland settings, the Evereste Crabapple’s compact size makes it an ideal choice for smaller gardens or for planting in groups in larger landscapes.

From a garden design perspective, the Evereste Crabapple offers great value. Its round shape, showy spring flowers, attractive fall foliage, and winter fruit provide a year-round display. Whether it’s used as a specimen tree, planted in a row for a striking alley effect, or utilised in a wildlife garden, its features add charm and visual interest.

In terms of wildlife benefits, the Evereste Crabapple is a valuable addition. Its flowers provide a valuable source of nectar and pollen for bees and other pollinators in the spring. The tree’s fruits are also a great food source for birds and other wildlife during the colder months when other food sources are scarce.

An interesting fact about the Evereste Crabapple is that despite its apple-like fruits, they are not typically used for human consumption due to their tart taste. However, they can be used in jellies or to add pectin to other preserves.

In conclusion, the Malus ‘Evereste’, with its spectacular flower display, ornamental fruits, and high wildlife value, makes it an attractive and beneficial addition to a British garden. Its compact size and year-round interest make it a versatile choice, suitable for a variety of garden designs.
