Flowering Crabapples have beautiful spring blooms and small, colorful fall fruit. Often the fruit remains for a long season of interest in fall and winter; when it softens the birds appreciate it as a food source. These small ornamental trees in the apple family (Malus) are highly valued for their two outstanding seasons of interest. Flowering Crabapples are hardy and easy to grow.
