Height: 15′ – 20′
Width: 15′ – 20′
Exposure: Full sun.
Fruit / Flower: Bright red crabapple. Fuchsia pink blossoms.
Fall Color: Yellow.
Water: Keep moist to establish (2 years). Once established, these trees don’t need extra watering as they are fairly drought tolerant. If the season is unusually dry a deep watering once a week at the base of the tree will suffice.
Fertilizer: Use a general fertilizer once a year just before new growth, although this is not necessary with most apple trees.
Pruning: Crabapple will perform best with regular annual pruning. Dead branches, water sprouts and smaller growth should be removed periodically. Generalized pruning is best done in late fall or dormancy. Prune away branches that are crossed.
