General tree description
Malus 'Profusion' is a small, spreading tree that may grow to around 9 metres tall. It has rough brown bark and oval leaves (7cm long), reddish-purple when new, becoming bronze green and finally turning yellow in autumn. In mid spring fragrant, cherry-red flowers, about 4cm across, appear in clusters. The flowers are followed by small red crab apples (up to 1.3cm diameter) that ripen in autumn and may persist into winter.
