This Crabapple is perfect for smaller spaces and modern gardens. Adding a flowering weeping ornamental softens edges and creates a perfect balance for your garden’s design.
Postage stamp gardens and city courtyards all can enjoy these fantastic ornamentals! Plant by your front door for a warm welcome!
This tasteful tree adapts to most conditions in its environment throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 8. Just like its Apple tree cousins, Crabapples prefer full sun so it can soak in the energy and nutrients that it needs. Also like most modern Crabapple trees, it is disease resistant!
Adaptable to a wide variety of soils, any type works as long as it’s well-drained. Water moderately yet consistently throughout the growing season, and be especially careful not to allow new trees to dry out at all until they’re established.
A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
