Crabapple - Red Barron
Unique Upright Growth and 4 Season Interest
The Red Barron Crabapple, Malus 'Red Baron', has a narrowly upright, columnar growth habit. As its profuse red buds open in May, the tree is draped in striking clusters of fragrant red flowers along the branches!
It has dark green foliage which emerges coppery bronze in spring; these pointy leaves turn an outstanding orange in the fall.
The falling leaves reveal the glorious color of the fruit. Red Barron's fruit are a deep, shiny red, giving this crabapple its name.They are the size of a cherry and ripen early to late fall, persisting through the winter.
Red Baron grows to 25' with an equal spread. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines.
This muti-seasonal tree should be grown in full sunlight for best color. It is tolerant of wet soils, urban pollution and is rabbit and deer resistant. It is not particular as to soil type and will even thrive in inner city environments!
No tree creates a greater intrigue or visual impact during all four seasons than the flowering crabapple!
