Red Jewel Crabapple
Show-stopping Blossoms and Berries
Red Jewel Crabapple is a small, deciduous tree with ornamental features. It would make an ideal planting for your backyard as an accent or in groupings. Its versatility would also make it a terrific choice for along your driveway or as a street planting. It has even been used for Bonsai.
Your Red Jewel Crabapple is a spring showstopper! Petite blossoms envelop the small tree in white, floral brilliance each and every April. The fragrance the delicate blossoms emit is a lovely lure to your lawn’s pollinators and will repeatedly draw you in for a closer look.
The leaves stay green throughout the summer, but transform to a lively yellow for autumn. As the leaves fall, the glorious color of the fruit will be revealed. Each brilliant, scarlet “jewel” is a marbled-sized treat for your wildlife that will further decorate your Red Jewel for winter.
Red Jewel Crabapple will grow to about15 feet in height with a spread of 10 feet. It has a rounded crown that is somewhat irregular, lending the tree a natural appearance for your landscape. It is quite hardy, with disease resistance to fireblight, rust, and black spot. Overall, Red Jewel will be a low maintenance tree for your yard.
Crabapples are renowned for their showy appearance, and Red Jewel is no exception. With a Red Jewel in your yard, you’ll have exceptional natural beauty every year, and a welcomed treat for your wildlife as well.
