Crabapple 'Professor Sprenger', Crab Apple 'Professor Sprenger', Malus 'Professor Sprenger'


A very pretty accent tree, Malus x zumi 'Professor Sprenger' (Crabapple) is a medium-sized deciduous tree with a long season of interest. Opening from pink buds, abundant clusters of fragrant white blossoms appear in mid spring, just as the fresh green foliage is unfolding. The blooms are followed by crops of conspicuous, orange-red fruits, 1/2 in. wuide (1.5 cm), in early fall, which persist well into winter. The summer canopy of oval green leaves warms up to golden and orange shades in the fall. The fruits will remain colorful and decorative in early winter until flocks of wild birds feast on them.

  • Grows up with a dense, upright, spreading habit to 20 ft. tall and wide (6 m).
  • A full sun lover, this tree is easily grown in moderately fertile, well-drained soils.
  • Perfect as a specimen plant, in city gardens or cottage 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
