An "Easy Care" Flowering Ornamental Tree

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you...
I could walk through my garden forever. 

~Alfred Lord Tennyson

Royal Raindrops® Crabapple Malus

When I saw this upright small ornamental tree at the nursery, I could not resist its vibrant pink-red flowers surrounded by deep dark purple foliage!  The rich red fruits, orange-red fall color, and interesting bark provides all-season appeal.  Outstanding disease resistance makes this "easy care" crabapple a jewel in the landscape!  Plant with confidence.  May all your gardens grow!

Height:   20'
Spread:  15'
Zone:     4

  4. I love crabapple trees! This one looks wonderful. I will look into it for my my VA zone 7-A. I don't see a lot of Crabapples around here, but grew up with them in Pennsylvania.
