Malus ‘Direktoer Moerland’, or Crab Apple ‘Profusion Improved’, is an upright, spreading, deciduous tree with rounded to ovoid, half-open crown, and attractive, colourful foliage – coppery-red when young, dark-green during the season, and yellow-bronze in autumn. Profusion of beautiful, fragrant, red-purple flowers emerge in clusters in spring and are followed by purple fruits in autumn that persist into winter. Attractive to birds and bees. Malus ‘Direktoer Moerland’ is an improved version of Crab Apple ‘Profusion’. It can adapt to a wide range of soils, but prefers moderately fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun, but tolerates partial shade. Once established, it is resistant to drought. It can withstand frost, wind, and urban pollution. Generally, disease-free, much more resilient to apple scab. Low maintenance plant. Malus ‘Direktoer Moerland’, with its attractive foliage, profusion of lovely, purple flowers and purple fruits, is a very decorative tree all year round. Perfect as a specimen or accent plant for informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Suitable for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
