Dolgo Crabapple Tree
Spectacular, Decorative Crabapple
Dolgo Crabapple Tree is a large and lovely crabapple variety. It would do well as a specimen tree in your yard, used as a windbreak, or for wildlife and riparian plantings.
Your Dolgo Crabapple tree has been a common landscape tree in generations past and still evokes wonderful childhood memories for many. The show begins in early April when the Dolgo Crabapple sprouts soft pink buds that open to an explosion of fragrant, self-pollinating, white flowers. The bloom lasts for weeks!
In fall the shiny, deep-green foliage turns a stunning, bright yellow that is certain to brighten your landscape.
As attractive as this well-known tree is, it’s just as valued for its juicy fruit that is sure to attract birds and wildlife…as well as friends and neighbors.
The brilliant crimson fruit ripens in August and are about the size of small plums. Sweeter and larger than other crabapples, the fruit is excellent for eating fresh, making pies, butter, jams, jellies, ciders and sauces.
Dolgo Crabapple will reach a height of about 20 feet with a 30 foot spread. It is a good pollinator because the long bloom period overlaps many other crabapples.
Dolgo is cold hardy, growing well in zones 3-9…which is just about anywhere! It is very disease resistant and the persistent fruit provides a food source for wildlife through the winter.
A decorative tree spring and fall, useful for windbreaks, hardy and disease resistant…and a source of food for wildlife! What else could a homeowner wish for in a landscape tree!
