Malus sargentii (Sargent Crabapple)

Sargent Crabapple, Malus toringo subsp. sargentii


A very pretty landscape tree, Malus sargentii (Sargent Crabapple) is a dwarf, deciduous, multi-stemmed shrub or small tree with a long season of interest. Opening from pink buds, abundant clusters of fragrant, sparkling white blossoms appear in mid to late spring. The flowers are borne in alternate years, blooming heavily every other year. They are followed by crops of very showy, persistent red fruits in fall, 1/4 in. (0.5 cm), which are long-lasting and attractive to birds. The dense and spreading, summer canopy of ovate, lobed, dark green leaves, warms up to golden shades in the fall, before shedding to the ground, revealing the architectural zigzagging branches. Popular as a bonsai tree.

  • Grows up with a dense, spreading, horizontally-branched habit to 6-10 ft. tall (180-300 cm) and 6-12 ft. wide (180-360 cm).
  • A full sun lover, this tree thrives in medium moisture, acidic, well-drained soils. This tree is not fussy and adapts to a wide range of soils. Drought tolerant once established.
  • Perfect as a specimen plant or in groups, for borders, as privacy screens and hedges in city gardens or cottage gardens.
  • Relatively resistant to most crabapple disease and insect problems.
  • Require only minimal pruning in late winter to remove damaged, diseased or misplaced growth.
  • Native to Japan
