The Centurion Crab Apple Tree is a beautiful flowering tree that is garlanded with large trusses of rosy-red flowers in May. In fall it is decorated with hanging clusters of small red crab apples, which persist into winter. They can be harvested and turned into delicious crab apple jelly. In spring the leaves are tinted red, and in fall they turn orange and bright red, making this tree beautiful and interesting all year round. It grows into an upright, vase-shaped tree with strong branches that rarely break in snow, reaching a height of 20 to 25 feet, and spreading no more than 20 feet wide. It makes a beautiful lawn specimen, an avenue of color, or a backdrop to your garden, and its size is ideal for smaller gardens. It is completely hardy to at least zone 4, and it is a reliable replacement for Japanese flowering cherries, which it rivals for beauty.

  • Rose red flowers smother the tree in May
  • Cherry-like red crab apples are colorful into winter
  • Very hardy, flowering well even in zone 4
  • Ideal replacement in cold regions for flowering cherries
  • Easily grown in all garden conditions

Plant the Centurion Crab Apple Tree in a sunny or lightly-shaded area, allowing room for it to spread to its mature width. It will grow in most soils that are not too wet, and this tough and hardy tree rarely needs any special attention. Rake up and destroy the leaves in fall to limit the spread of diseases. Once established it is moderately drought tolerant, and this easy-care tree will soon become a beloved feature in any garden. Plant it to mark a special occasion, or just plant it to enjoy the combination of beautiful flowers and attractive fruit. If you don’t turn the crab apples into jelly, the birds will love them as winter food.
