The Robinson Crab Apple is a superb choice for a small spring-flowering tree in colder parts of the country. It will bloom reliably where other spring trees fail. In warmer areas it continues the spring display into May, as well as carrying clusters of attractive bright red fruit right into the winter months. It grows into a small tree, 15 to 25 feet tall, and a similar width, with a rounded crown. The young spring leaves are a rich purple, emerging just as the flowers fade. They change for the summer into deep green, and then turn orange in the fall. The flowers begin as burgundy-red buds, open deep pink, and then turn paler pink, before ending almost white. The kaleidoscope of colors makes the tree always interesting throughout all the seasons.

  • Beautiful spring showing of red to pink blossoms
  • Cherry red crab apples stay well into winter
  • Highly resistant to apple diseases
  • Perfect smaller tree for small gardens
  • Very fast growing, more than 2 feet a year

The Robinson Crab Apple is easy to grow in a wide range of conditions, including poor soil and urban gardens. Water regularly when newly-planted, but once established it is drought resistant under normal conditions. Unlike many older varieties of crab apples, this one has been selected to be very resistant to most of the apple diseases, so the foliage always looks healthy. As well, it is considered one of the fastest growing crab apples available. No pruning is required, so this truly is a low-maintenance tree with so much to offer in any garden.
