Red Sentinel is a beautiful crabapple variety with scented, white blossoms opening from pink buds. It flowers from early May and in autumn produces profusion of rich red, sometimes yellow flushed fruit that is not edible for humans but delicious for birds.

Leaves are deciduous, broadly ovate, dark green and glossy. The habit of this tree is somewhat irregular when young, changing to upright with age. The canopy is probably as wide as tall and may take up to 5m making this crabapple a mid-sized tree. Pruning, if needed, should be carried out in the middle or at the end of winter.

Apple and crabapple trees will grow in most soils but do best in well-drained but evenly moist, fertile, preferably acid soil for best autumn colours. When planting it, make sure the root-ball is well soaked with water. Fully hardy to about -29°C (USDA zone 5).
