Crabapples are among the most popular spring flowering trees. They’re adaptable to a range of soil types. Buds for the next season will set in mid-summer, so prune in early June if needed. Suckers should be removed and pruning the center of the plant to encourage air movement can help prevent disease problems. Indian Summer has rose flowers that emerge from red buds. 3/4 inch bright red fruit turns orange in the fall and persists into winter. Indian Summer is one of the most productive fruiting crabapples. Green summer foliage and orange-red fall color. Good scab, fireblight, rust, and mildew resistance.
