Dr Alan Warwick, a keen amateur gardener, found that one of the Malus × purpurea ‘Aldenhamensis’ plants he had grown from seed displayed a weeping habit, contrasting with the naturally upright habit of the parent plant. Dr Warwick took the tree to Hillier Nurseries, who confirmed that this was indeed a new cultivar.
