Many of the flowering ornamental trees in this collection are non-fruiting (or very low fruiting) versions of fruit trees. Malus are apples, Prunus are plums, apricots, and peaches, Pyrus are pears, and so on. Some of these will produce fruit which is often not great eating however some crab apple varieties will produce a fruit ideal for making jellies.

“Always read the label of a tree to ensure you plant it in the ideal location to achieve the best results. For example, a flowering tree may require a full sun position and will not achieve best results if planted in a position overshadowed by other trees or buildings”. Wes
