Abstract: Ornamental Malus cultivars with pendulous branches are called weeping or hanging crabapples. This report is part of a project aimed at identification and characterization of weeping crabapple clones. We used DNA-fingerprinting techniques, morphological characters and historical records to unravel the name and origin of 13 Finnish and Swedish weeping crabapple specimens. One Swedish and four Finnish trees were identified as Malus prunifolia ‘Pendula’, which originated at the experimental station of the Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture in Stockholm in 1859 or 1860. Two old Swedish trees were concluded to represent M. p. ‘Pendula Nova’, another weeping clone born in the same station in 1873 and regarded as extinct long ago. Malus ‘Hyvingiensis’ was verified as a unique, triploid cultivar grown from seed at the Finnish State Railways Nurseries, Hyvinkää around 1900. DNA-fingerprinting revealed several mislabellings among both the local and the reference samples. Three of the local trees and two of the reference accessions remained unidentified. The three historical cultivars will be preserved in the national gene banks.
