Tina Sargent Crabapple
Malus sargentii 'Tina'
|Description||A dense, dwarf form whose profuse bright red buds open to single white flowers that mature to small 1/4 inch red fruit. The small tree with spreading and somewhat pendulous branches is striking as a specimen, for lining a drive, or for framing an entrance. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Once established water during dry spells.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches only 5 ft. tall, 6 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||A small cold hardy accent tree is an ideal spring specimen for both close and as long range focal points. Best set off against a background of tall, dark evergreens. Attractive at close range in conjunction with foundation plantings aligned for window appreciation of unique foliage and birds feeding on winter fruit. Vital to all wild gardens and very attractive in mixed woodlands or as small groves to compound wildlife value. Makes a good lawn tree, but best kept clear of paving.|
|Companion Plants||Viburnum (Viburnum); Boxwood (Buxus); Dwarf Mugo Pine (Pinus); Weigela (Weigela); Arborvitae (Thuja)|
|Care||Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; increase frequency before spring bloom. Feed before new spring growth appears. Thin heavy crops in early summer to prevent breakage or damage. Prune after flowering.|
