Tina Sargent Crabapple (Malus sargentii 'Tina') is truly a unique tree to own! Bright red flower buds emerge in early spring and pop open to reveal numerous clusters of single white flowers! Each bloom is crowned with golden stamen that look like showers of golden sparks!

Tina is a natural genetic dwarf with an upright spreading form and a fine overall texture. Filling out in a rounded shape at maturity, these fanciful ornamentals require little upkeep to maintain their natural shape and form!

Lovely dark green foliage fills out the tree after the blooms fade, and becomes the perfect backdrop for the glossy red Crabapple fruits in fall! Persisting throughout the winter, you’ll adore the red gems as they shine through the snow, brightening winter’s dull hues.

Butterflies and bees flock to the prolific blooms while songbirds flock to the fruit, making Tina Sargent a fantastic wildlife tree! You’ll enjoy all the winged visitors you have buzzing about this beautiful accent tree!

Bring playfulness when left unpruned, or prune for a fanciful formal style for your full sun terrace or patio with these charming trees! Porch pots in the sun, bright balcony gardens and container plantings gain an incredibly unique, stylish and whimsical feel!

One-of-a-kind accents around seating areas, your entertaining spot and fire pit will look incredible with a boost from these unique dwarf trees. Ideal for Espalier and Bonsai, while there is not much need to prune this petite beauty, you’ll achieve a next-level specimen!

Plant throughout Cottage gardens and Perennial beds and borders, or anchor a large mixed planting with a statement piece that has heads turning! Gorgeous accent plants for Butterfly gardens, and wildlife gardens short on space, you’ll still benefit the bees, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators even when your garden is small scale.

While you won’t like the taste of the bitter red fruit, your local songbird population will! Many gardeners do make jam and jelly from the tart, pectin-rich fruit that adds wonderful color to other preserves!

#ProPlantTips For Care

Who doesn't love sunbathing?! This tiny tree definitely does! Full sun is needed for optimal growth and bloom set. Hardy in USDA growing zones 4 through 8, these are very adaptable trees!

Water modestly yet consistently for best results, and can adapt to a wide variety of soils. These mini-trees prefer medium-moisture in acidic well-drained soil, but once matured they are somewhat drought tolerant. The tiny Tina Crabapple is easy to grow and very forgiving of its environment and of inexperienced gardeners alike.

Pruning is typically not needed on this little darling unless you want to thin the crown a bit or keep it in a formal ball. Avoid spring pruning as it may open up cracks and allow fire blight to invade this already disease-resistant Crabapple. Tina is just about as low maintenance as it gets when it comes to flowering ornamental trees!

The Tina Sargent Crabapple tree is definitely one of a kind, which makes it perfect for any setting, especially yours! Why not see for yourself!? Get one today to see what it could add to your landscape! Head over to NatureHills.com right away!
