The Japanese Flowering Crabapple is a classic flowering tree for spring, guaranteed to deliver a profusion of blooms that will make spring special. The bare branches will be covered in clusters of dark red buds that open to light pink blossoms, making one of the most beautiful spring displays possible. A good substitute for Japanese flowering cherry trees in colder zones, with the bonus of a bright display of dark red, cherry-like fruits in fall. The dark-green leaves turn yellow and red in fall. A large tree with a 30-foot spread, plant it in open spaces, on lawns or at the back of shrub beds.

  • Profuse blooming with red buds and pink blossoms
  • Big crop of small, cherry-like, red fruits in fall
  • Easily grown for a reliable spring display
  • Broad spreading specimen tree for open spaces
  • Very cold-hardy replacement for flowering cherry trees

Full sun is best for the Japanese Flowering Crabapple, which grows in almost any well-drained soil. Established trees have moderate resistance to normal summer drought. This tree is hardy in zone 4, flowers from an early age, and is easy to grow. Although it can develop some leaf diseases, these are not serious. No special pruning is needed or desirable – the natural form is best.
