Growth Habit

The Malus 'Red Sentinel,' also known as the ornamental apple, is a relatively small tree with branches that grow in a horizontal to drooping growth habit.


Leaf Color

The leaves of the Malus 'Red Sentinel' are dark green and sit on red leaf stems.


Autumn Coloring

In autumn, the leaves turn into beautiful yellow to orange hues before falling off the tree.



In spring, the Malus 'Red Sentinel' blooms with bright white flowers. As they unfold, these flowers turn pink and then open fully in a bright white color.


Ornamental Apples

After flowering, the ornamental apples appear on the tree, which are bright red and remain on the tree until deep into winter. This provides a good food source for various birds.



The Malus 'Red Sentinel' prefers a nutrient-rich soil that is sufficiently moist.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
