Your Four-Season Interest Red Barron Crabapple

  • Abundant Spring Bloom
  • Fruit Persists All Winter
  • Pollution Tolerant
  • Bronze Foliage

Red Barron Crabapple (Malus x' Red Barron') is a deciduous tree that offers 4-season ornamental interest. It's a terrific accent tree, with a narrow, upright nature that's perfect for smaller landscapes. If you have a spot for an ornamental tree, but not much space, Red Barron is for you.

Your Red Barron Crabapple will amaze you when its profusion of red buds open in May! Each spring, Red Barron drapes itself in striking clusters of fragrant red flowers that virtually cover the branches in scarlet intensity!

As the season progresses, the foliage emerges a coppery bronze, transitioning to dark green, before clothing your tree in brilliant orange for autumn.

The falling leaves reveal the glorious color of the fruit, a deep, shiny red that gives your crabapple its name. These cherry-sized fruit ripen in early to late fall and often persist through the winter months.

Red Barron Crabapple has a narrowly upright, columnar growth habit. Its low canopy has a typical clearance of two feet from the ground and is suitable for planting under power lines.

Your Red Barron is very urban savvy, tolerant of most any soil as long as it's well drained. Because of the great form this tree has, it needs little pruning or help from anyone to do anything except show off all year long.

Although adaptive, full sunlight will provide the best color in your Red Barron. Under ideal conditions, you can expect your Red Barron to thrive in your yard for fifty years or more!
