Malus ioensis ‘Plena‘ – Betchel’s Flowering Crabapple. Utterly beautiful! In this part of the garden I am trying to have only fruit trees that are useful – i.e. they give fruit! “Plena” is so lovely flowering here with white foxgloves that the usefulness is all in the beauty. I am looking forward to Autumn though to see if the crab apples are enough to add to a rose hip and crab apple jam to satisfy my thrifty housewife inclinations.
