Design Ideas This 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.
Flower Color Red
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Cherry (Prunus); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Bee Balm (Monarda); Lavender (Lavandula)
CARE
Care Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed before new spring growth appears. Thin heavy crops in early summer to prevent breakage or damage. Prune as needed to remove dead or damaged wood, or maintain smaller size.
