Make a big impact in your landscape with small flowering trees. They add such joy to patio plantings; and effortlessly boost curb appeal in the front yard.

Adams Crabapple (Malus x 'Adams') is an exceptionally showy choice for the smaller home garden. It has a compact, rounded shape and brilliant flower and fruiting displays.

This choice looks amazing in early spring, but the ornamental qualities continue through summer, fall and last well into winter. Small space gardens need plants with four seasons of interest...and this petite tree really delivers.

Each spring before the leaves appear, Adams' dense, rounded canopy is transformed into a flowering cloud. Watch as masses of buds open to large, mid-toned pink-burgundy blossoms.

The color is simply stunning! Invite guests over for an annual Spring Fling to celebrate the beauty.

Adams Crabapple is a good, strong tree with superior disease resistance. The foliage has a reddish tint in spring, then remains glossy green all summer casting welcome shade underneath.

In fall, the foliage turns a glowing harvest orange. At the same time, you'll start to see the small fruits turn a cheerful, glossy red.

People do use Crabapples, especially in jelly-making. The fruit is edible, and contains pectin...a natural thickener.

What you don't harvest will be eaten by the birds through the winter. A fruited Adams Crabapple makes a natural decoration for the Holiday Season.

It stays small enough to make stringing outdoor lights an easy task. Shine exterior lighting up into the canopy for a wonderful focal point at night.

This Crabapple does best in full sun and moist, well drained, slightly acidic soil. Add time-tested Nature Hills Root Booster to your order and follow directions on the packet during planting.

Adams Crabapple maintains visual interest throughout the changing seasons with its vivid pink spring flowers, attractive foliage, fall color, and bright red fruit. Order yours today!
