Recognised for its abundant blossoms, the Malus ‘Evereste’ thrives in urban settings, injecting much needed colour and allure to city landscapes. Not only does it withstand urban pollutants, but it also showcases impressive disease resistance.

As spring unfolds the ‘Evereste’ unfurls its scarlet red buds, transitioning into softer pink hues before bursting into radiant white blossoms that drape the entire tree canopy. These flowers are a magnet for bees, ensuring pollination for nearby apple trees.

During summer, the tree sports glossy green foliage that gradually transforms to yellow as autumn approaches. Come autumn, the ‘Evereste’ produces an ample crop of fruits resembling small commercial apples. These fruits boast a delightful blend of reds and yellows, attracting both wildlife and culinary enthusiasts who transform them into sauces and desserts. Remaining on the tree well into winter, fruits are often harvested for fresh apple sauce.

With its conical shape, the ‘Evereste’ is an enchanting addition, especially when planted with early-flowering species in public areas. Pairing it with Magnolia kobus creates a captivating visual contrast; as the Kobus unveils its pink buds followed by pristine white blossoms, the ‘Evereste’ seamlessly takes over with its own vibrant floral display. This harmonious succession offers an ever changing and cohesive seasonal display, making it a perfect choice for communal areas within residential settings.
