Design IdeasThis easy-to-grow accent tree can be used as a single specimen in the front yard for curb appeal, or in the back where you may enjoy its seasonal changes. An excellent habitat and food source for wildlife. Its dark fruit is very decorative but may stain light-colored paving. There is nothing more beautiful than a gateway flanked with flowering Crabapple, or a long run of them up the driveway for a large-scale display. Perfect for country and cottage gardens to achieve that old-fashioned romantic character.
