White Flowers For Weeks!
The Adirondack Crabapple, Malus 'Adirondack', is an ornamental crabapple which has carmine red buds for weeks before it explodes in white flowers. It would be an outstanding focal accent in your flower garden or shrub border.
Crabapple trees are still one of the most popular ornamental trees used in the United States for a variety of reasons, and your Adirondack is unique among Crabapple trees.
It will flower and fruit far longer than other crabapples and is highly disease resistant. You won’t have to worry about spraying it with costly chemicals and it doesn’t even require pruning. It’s also drought tolerant and adaptable to many soils.
The Adirondack Crabapple can grow to 18 feet tall and has an upright branched, narrow manner. It has a classic vase shape, with the branches extending up into the sky. This makes it perfect for those tight spaces where you’d like a crabapple, but just don’t think you have the room.
In the spring, your Crabapple will form dark red buds that gradually lighten and open into waxy-white, fragrant flowers with traces of red. You’ll love how the blooms seem to overwhelm the tree with color.
The three inch, dark green leaves have a leathery texture and provide a dense, healthy appearance to your tree through the summer months, but you’ll especially love the ½ inch fruit your tree produces.
The little balls of bright orange color are a delight to behold, and hang on into the winter months. The contrast of their brilliant color against the white snow is outstanding in any yard.
The Adirondack Crabapple is a veritable gift to butterflies, birds and bees, and certainly a pleasure to experience in any landscape.
