Crabapple - Prairiefire

Easy to Grow with All Season Interest


The Prairefire is a purplish red flowering crabapple tree with ornamental features.  It would look great as a single specimen tree, or planting several along your driveway would be a spectacular way to welcome guests.


It has a long bloom period of 1/2" purplish red flowers that do not fade!  The purple leaves emerge and later transform to a green with a reddish tint. 


When the flowers have gone, ½ inch shiny, dark purplish red, fruit develop which are similar to cherries in appearance.  The fruits dangle from the tree into the winter months for birds and other wildlife to enjoy. 


In the autumn, the leaves of your Prairiefire will close out the season by attaining an exquisite orange tint.  The reddish bark of the crabapple is a lovely backdrop to the white snows and will continue to delight through the cold months of winter. 


The Prairiefire grows to 20 feet in height with an equal spread.  It has upright growth with a rounded canopy at maturity.  Even without its particular features, it’s a lovely landscape tree


* Large Non Fading Persistent Purplish Red Blossoms
* Disease Resistant
* Persistent Fruit
* Hardy

Fall Color Review by Red Baron

I like the fall color. I do not have much orange in my yard and the Prairiefire crabapple performs nicely every fall.

Purple leaves in the spring on the Prairiefire crabapple is why I purchased this tree, also it is not huge and fits in my yard nicely.

I purchased the praifire crabapple tree from lowes in Frinklin, North Carolina. It is situated at the bottom of stone stairs, a beautful focal point. It is lovely at all times of the year. Locals ask me, "What is this and where can I get it?" Bees and butterflies flock to it. In the winter birds come to the small hanging fruit. This tree is the very best for any land scape! Wait until you see it bloom in the spring! My tree is planted in Rabun County Georgia,2,200 elevation.
