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. Lollipop is a small cultivar that has prolific white flowers emerge from pink buds. Small, golden fruit and green foliage. Good disease resistance.
