Crabapple Trees

The Crabapple tree is really a great tree for the small garden. The huge flush of brilliant spring flowers produced by this small tree provide a visual impact well worth having in the Southwest landscape.

Showy white to pink flowers are followed by small edible fruit, which remain on the tree well into the fall, only to be revealed when the colorful autumn foliage falls.

Most Crabapple varieties only grow about 15 to 25 feet high, which make it a great choice for the patio garden.

Crabapples require little pruning, full sun and moderate watering. Suckers may form from roots or base of tree and should be removed.

Crabapple trees do very well in the desert Southwest garden.
