Description

When spring comes, it’s show time for all crabapples, but this one really grabs the spotlight. The large, densely clustered fuchsia-red flowers turn the branches into columns of lush color. Deep green foliage has red tones of its own, especially as it emerges. In fall, red fruits glisten among the bright orange and red leaves. Oval, upright habit lends a touch of formality as a specimen or street tree. Recommended as a replacement for ‘Prairifire’ by Ohio State University.

As part of the Proven Winners ColorChoice Trees program, liners, whips, and finished plants are available only through the network of licensed growers.
