Malus 'Adirondack' (Crabapple)

Crabapple 'Adirondack', Crab Apple 'Adirondack', Malus Admiration, Malus 'Admiration'


Consistently rated as being a superior crabapple, Malus 'Adirondack' is a pretty, small deciduous tree with a long season of interest. Opening from deep carmine buds, masses of fragrant, large, waxy, white blossoms appear in late spring, just as the fresh green foliage is unfolding. It is one of the most profusely flowered of all crabapple cultivars. The blooms are followed by abundant clusters of cherry-like, glossy, bronze-red fruits, 1/2 in. wide (1 cm), which persist well into winter. Any unpicked fruits will remain colorful and decorative, but will gradually turn mushy and wild birds will feast on them. Disease resistant, unique in form, elegant in flower, colorful in fruit, 'Adirondack' stars in every season of the year.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
  • Grows up with a columnar habit to 12-18 ft. tall (360-540 cm) and 6-10 ft. wide (180-300 cm). The upright form makes this tree an ideal choice in formal settings and where space is limited.
  • 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. Perfect for small gardens!
  • Require only minimal pruning in late winter or spring, to remove damaged, diseased or misplaced growth.
  • Propagate by chip budding in late summer. Grafting can be carried out in midwinter
