Who knew Crabapples could be this elegant?
Featuring a dynamic growth habit, the Lollipop® Crabapple (Malus x 'Lollizam') is a prolific bloomer! It is a truly sweet addition to the landscape in terms of visual appeal and wildlife value! And it offers huge visual impact in a 7-8 feet tall, compact size!
It's easy to see how the Lollipop® Crabapple earned its name. With a straight and narrow, sturdy trunk and a puff of fluffy white flowers in spring, this small tree looks it was designed by Willie Wonka! Plus it smells as sweet as it looks when in bloom!
With such a refined and formal form, Lollipop® looks as if you spent hours trimming and pruning it to look as lovely as it does. The reality is, this dwarf tree keeps its form without much pruning at all! Its branches naturally reach upward, creating a celebratory scene.
After the dazzling fragrant white flowers fades, you’ll still appreciate the broad, ovular green foliage that flanks its branches. As summer turns into fall, you’ll notice a feast of honey yellow fruit that blush red where the sun has kissed them.
While you may not want to eat the bitter fruits, your local birds will adore them! These wildlife trees also attract beneficial insects and bees, so you’ll be doing them a favor!
Along with its showy white flowers, you’ll appreciate that Lollipop® is a fantastic pollination partner for edible apple varieties without taking up prime orchard space!
Lollipop® Crabapple is great as large, potted specimens on your porch. Balcony and rooftop gardeners can even enjoy a flowering Crabapple of their own!
Use two to flank your doorway for added drama, and welcome visitors with unique splendor. If you're looking for more excitement in your front bed or formal garden, add this tidy tree as an accent or anchor planting.
Plant in large planters around your patio and seating areas to cast shade and add privacy! Property edges gain definition with a hedgerow of these darling trees! Maintenance-free screening that also looks divine, is just a few trees away!
Flowering trees require full sun for the most blooms and healthiest trees. Hardy in USDA growing zones 4 through 8, these are widely adaptable plants!
Plant in most enriched soil types that are moist and have very good drainage. Young trees require consistent moisture and do not like to dry out between waterings. Established trees are somewhat drought tolerant, but it’s best to protect your investment by providing adequate moisture.
Lollipop® appreciates a layer of mulch over the root system for moisture retention and insulation. Otherwise, there is little in the way of maintenance required to keep your tree looking spiffy!
Bountiful blooms on a space-saving flowering ornamental tree, the Lollipop® Crabapple Tree will delight you with adorable yet tough-as-nails nature! Order yours today from NatureHills.com before they’re gone!
