Henning Crabapple – Malus ‘Henningi’

Henning Crabapple blossoms

This lovely crab boasts red buds opening to white flowers and winter persistent fruit.

As you can see from these pictures, Henning crab has a stately, semi-vase spreading form with gobs red buds opening to blinding-white blossoms. These tree are absolutely covered with blossoms! And in the autumn picture below, look at all that luscious winter-persistent red fruit.
One picture is worth a thousand words, as they say.Most growers list this tree as growing to 30 feet. These trees are 14 years old, so they may be right – but I’ve also found the size of crabapple trees almost always exaggerated. I only know of a very few crabs that reach 30 feet, and this is not one of them.
