You'll fall deeply in love with this pretty, fruit-less flowering Crabapple. Spring Snow Crabapple (Malus Spring Snow') explodes with stunning fragrant white flowers in spring. The blooms are held profusely along its branches right to the tips. It's a marvelous display of pristine white flowers!
Spring Snow was a breakthrough fruitless variety that does not produce any crabapples at all. You don't have to worry about messy fruit on your patio, courtyard, driveway or sidewalk.
You'll love this tree all year-long. Spring Snow Crabapple features a crisp, clean, and classic upright oval form. It can be used in many different ways throughout your landscape.
After the yummy-smelling, white spring blooms are done, the tree develops shiny, bright green leaves. You'll enjoy their refreshing shade all summer long.
The foliage turns yellow in the fall—a bright harvest shade for seasonal decoration. And this hardy flowered Crabapple is one of the best ornamental trees for winter interest. The erect branches catch the snow for a marvelous sight in winter.
This pretty tree has excellent resistance to diseases that were faced by old-fashioned Crabs. This is truly an improved variety and is much more refined and disease free compared to the older selections.
An extremely uniform outline without pruning, a massive white cloud of bloom in spring, shiny green foliage all summer, and a fruitless selection that is hardy and easy to grow in most soils. What could be better? Order your Spring Snow today!
How to Use Spring Snow Crabapple in the Landscape
Crabapples are grown for the incredible flower display each spring all along the branches. People love using them as a specimen plant, to accent their homes, or as a focal point in a garden.
Spring Snow is fruitless, so it opens the door for being used near sidewalks, driveways, patios. They look fantastic on larger properties or commercial buildings, too.
Many times, you'll see them used in larger informal groups of all the same variety. Why not try planting it in a group of Crabapples with similar size and form, but with a different flower color?
Use as an accent in a foundation planting. Place it at the corner of your house to anchor the design. Site it at least 15 feet from the exterior for easy maintenance.
Spring Snow is a low-branched tree, so keep in mind that it will block a view. Create a formal hedge planting as a privacy fence, or the walls of an outdoor room. Plant them 10 feet apart, measuring from the trunk of one to the trunk of the next. The canopies will grow together and form a solid screen.
Keep lower branches on the trees if you want a large, flowering privacy screen. Or, limb them back to the main trunk for an ornamental allee—or double row—on either side of your driveway or the entrance of an outdoor kitchen.
They would make a terrific backdrop for a formal garden focal point. Flank on either side of an arbor or pergola. Use along your pool deck in a wide mulched bed, in a berm planting or in your mixed border.
White flowering Spring Snow is also a great candidate to add color in front of a large evergreen windbreak or in a shelterbelt. The blooms will be very showy against the dark evergreen foliage.
Plant Spring Snow as a nice row of street trees, but please site them to the inside of your front sidewalk. Municipalities like using them as street trees where not a lot of road salt is being used. Excessive exposure to road salt will not be well tolerated by Spring Snow.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Plant Spring Snow in a location with full sun and well-drained soil. Planting at the proper depth in a sunny, well drained site is the way to keep Crabapples happy.
The only pruning that should be done is to carefully train lower branches, or to remove any crossing or damaged branches. Prune it while it's dormant in late winter.
Give it full sun and well-drained soil for best performance. Plan to provide regular supplemental water if adequate rainfall isn't sufficient. Crabapples tolerate cold winters, hot summers and even short periods of drought after they are established.
It isn't fussy about soil conditions, as long as water drains quickly. They can even thrive in urban environments.
Place your order for Spring Snow Crabapple and grace your landscape with the most beautiful white flower display next spring!
