I've been searching everywhere for this particular species of crabapple. I can't get it in the United States. I'm looking for someone who can send me a seedling or seeds of "Malus, John Downie crab apple tree". Someone please help!!
Sadly thiis will not grow true from seeds. In fact no apple treee will grow true from seeds.
As specific crab apples are grafted, it would be no good to plant a seedling or seeds of John Downie. You would get a very inferior plant, probably the result of cross-pollination. Have you tried looking on the Orange Pippen site for growers in the USA?
High all try
