Commonly called columnar apple trees, Colonnade® apple trees, or Urban Apple® trees, present a wonderful opportunity to grow your own fresh fruit when space is limited. They have a compact, upright, narrow growth habit and mature to be about 8-10 feet tall and 18-24 inches wide. This makes them perfect for growing in containers on balconies and patios, or planting in smaller yards and gardens.
Each year these trees will give you an impressive crop of flavorful, full-size apples. Some taste great right off the tree, while others can be used for making jellies or sauces. Plus, these trees make attractive ornamental additions to any outdoor setting. They offer lovely white or pink blossoms in spring and beautiful foliage that looks great in summer before turning to feature lovely autumn shades in fall. You can plant multiple columnar apple trees in a row to create your own “living fence.”
