Firebird Crabapple

If you are looking for a focal point for a planting bed or in the yard as a standalone, the Firebird Crabapple might be a consideration. This ornamental crab reaches about 10’ h x 8-10’ w at maturity. The dense spreading deciduous has horizontally tiered branches giving the tree a formal compact look. Springtime brings tight clusters of fragrant white flowers with dark green foliage that turns yellow in the fall. Red fruit that hasn’t been eaten by the wildlife, along with the red branches and brown bark will create winter interest. As with other flowering trees, the Firebird will thrive in full sun and with well-draining soil. This particular variety of crab tree has excellent resistance to apple scab and fire-blight.
