Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral StellaElla On Aug 18, 2011, StellaElla from Graham, NC (Zone 7b) wrote:

We've had a 7 ft. specimen in our full sun, north facing yard for about a year. Spring bloom was disappointing, considering that this cultivar of Malus generally blooms profusely. We've also had a terrible problem with rust and dying branches, making the tree look sickly. I won't post a negative though, because I'm hoping once the problems get sorted out and the tree grows a little, it should be a striking part of our perennial bed/landscaping. Zone 5B, outside Toronto, Ontario.
