Malus floribunda 'Coccinella', commonly known as the Japanese crabapple 'Coccinella', is a stunning ornamental tree cherished for its aesthetic appeal in landscapes and gardens. This particular cultivar is grafted onto a clear stem to create a 'standard' tree form, which means that the trunk is free of branches up to a certain height, emphasizing a neat, rounded canopy above. The clear stem is typically about 1 to 1.5 meters in height, promoting an elegant, upright appearance.

In the spring, the tree bursts into a spectacular display of bright red buds, which open into an abundant flourish of small, five-petaled, pink to white flowers. These blossoms are not only a visual treat but also attract a myriad of pollinators, adding life and movement to the garden. The foliage of 'Coccinella' is equally attractive, with leaves emerging with a reddish tint before maturing to a glossy, deep green.

As the seasons progress, the tree produces tiny, red to orange crabapples, which provide a striking contrast against the foliage and persist into the winter, offering a valuable food source for birds. The 'Coccinella' standard tree is a resilient and low-maintenance addition to the landscape, adaptable to a range of soil conditions and resistant to many of the diseases that commonly afflict crabapples.
