Plant Family / Malus - Crabapples
Malus (Crabapples) are small to medium-sized deciduous trees with pretty, scented, pure white to deep pink flowers in spring. In the fall, small, attractively colored fruit like miniature apples clustered along the stems. Any unpicked fruits will remain colorful and decorative through the winter until flocks of wild birds feast on them. Some often have good autumn leaf color as well. Elegant in flower, colorful in fruit, these flowering trees star in every season of the year.
Regarded as an outstanding Flowering Crabapple, Malus 'Donald Wyman' is a large, spreading deciduous tree with a long season of interest. Opening from pink buds, masses of fragrant, white blossoms appear in mid spring, just as the dark green foliage is unfolding.
Ideal for small gardens, Malus 'Evereste' (Crabapple) is a charming deciduous tree with several seasons of interest. Opening from rich red buds, masses of large, cup-shaped, white blossoms, 2 in. across (5 cm), appear in late spring, just as the foliage is unfolding.
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.
