Scarlet Flowers/Fruit with 4-Season Interest

Red Baron Crabapple is a deciduous tree that offers 4-season ornamental interest.  It’s a terrific accent tree, with a narrow, upright nature that’s perfect for smaller landscapes.  If you have a spot for an ornamental tree, but not much space, Red Baron is for you.

Your Red Baron Crabapple will amaze you when its profusion of red buds open in May!  Each spring, Red Baron drapes itself in striking clusters of fragrant red flowers that virtually cover the branches in scarlet intensity! 

As the season progresses, the foliage emerges a coppery bronze, transitioning to dark green…before clothing your tree in brilliant orange for autumn.  The falling leaves reveal the glorious color of the fruit, a deep, shiny red that gives your crabapple its name.  These cherry-sized fruit ripen in early to late fall, and often persist through the winter months. 

Red Baron Crabapple will grow to twenty feet with an eight-foot spread.  It has a narrowly upright, columnar growth habit.  Its low canopy has a typical clearance of two feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines.

Your Red Baron 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. 

Although adaptive, full sunlight will provide the best color in your Red Baron.  Under ideal conditions, you can expect your Red Baron to thrive in your yard for fifty years or more!

Few trees create a greater intrigue or visual impact during all four seasons than the flowering crabapple.  Plant a Red Baron today!

Small tree Review by Laura F
The Red Barron crabapple fits into small areas. I have on the narrow strip of ground between my driveway and the neighbors property. It stays in the narrow 10 foot area quite nicely. Pretty tree also.
Great Shape and color Review by Joy
This is a tree with a low trunk so it's a great tree for privacy. It also has tons of color. I especially like the orange leaves in the fall.
