The Story

Did you know that Johnny Appleseed was not a seller of apple trees, but crabapple trees? Because if you plant an apple seed, you will almost surely not get a tree that yields big, juicy apples, but one that produces small, sour ones—crabapples. Named varieties of both apples and crabapples are propagated by “budding,” a type of grafting—not by seed.

The Details

Make your landscape sparkle with the Pink Sparkles Flowering Crabapple! This stunning crabapple starts the spring out with dazzling pink blooms that welcome crisp green foliage soon after. Once the foliage is spent, vibrant red fruit grace the branches and will last through winter into the following spring.

How to Grow

Flowering Crabapples grow well in a wide range of soil conditions and should be planted in a sunny area of your yard; they can tolerate very light shade as well. As with all trees, keep your newly planted Crabapple watered. Don’t keep the soil too wet, however, moist soil is fine. Crabapples also like fertilizer, the more you give them – the more they grow. Once a year apply a simple tree fertilizer during fall to help promote new growth and flowers for the following season. Pruning Flowering Crabapples is fairly easy. Prune branches after your Crabapple is done flowering and cut off any suckers around the base of your tree whenever they appear.
