Malus 'Sugar Tyme' is an upright, oval, deciduous tree with a long season of interest. Opening from pale pink buds, masses of sweet-smelling, pure white flowers appear in mid spring. Draped in clusters along the branches, they are truly a sight to behold. The showy blossoms are followed by abundant, radiant red fruits, 1/2 in. (1.2 cm), that remain on the tree all year (unless the birds eat them!). Equally attractive is the crisp foliage of glossy, rich green ovate leaves, which becomes bronze-yellow in the fall. A beautiful flowering crabapple tree that is disease resistant and looks spectacular all year long.
- Grows up to 14-20 ft. tall (420-600 cm) and 10-15 ft. wide (300-450 cm).
- A full sun lover, this tree is easily grown in moderately fertile, well-drained soils. Once established, it is drought tolerant.
- Perfect as specimen plant, in city gardens or cottage gardens.
- Require only minimal pruning in late winter, to remove damaged, diseased or misplaced growth.
