Marilee Crabapple Tree
All of the romantic flowers and no messy fruit!
Nothing says ‘spring’ in the garden quite like a crabapple tree in full flower. If you’ve ever grown one in your own landscape you’ll know what we mean. Unfortunately, many folks love the flowers, but hate the fruit. Crabapples are a bit of an acquired taste. If you aren’t harvesting them for canning or baking, at best you end up with unattractive, half eaten fruit hanging on the tree where the squirrels and birds have eaten their fill, or at worst a rotting mess on the ground. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
If you want all of the spring splendor without the summer harvest, let us introduce you to Marilee. Marilee Crabapple (Malus ‘Jarmin’ PP 14337) has all of the gorgeous flowers you desire, but is naturally fruitless!
In the spring, Marilee is covered in deep pink buds that open to double, blushing white flowers. This striking display is followed in the summer by…nothing! No fruit whatsoever. Enjoy the deep green leaves and beautiful upright, narrow, columnar shape without worrying about the mess of fruit.
All of these traits – upright, columnar, fruitless, showy flowers – mean that Marilee is really excellent as a street or courtyard tree, but she is showy in any landscape.
You’ll be really glad to have these in your garden. Order yours today!
