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. Japanese floribunda has fragrant white flowers emerge from red to pink buds. 3/8″ yellow and red fruit. Green leaves. Excellent Japanese Beetle resistance.
