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. Pink Princess has rose-colored flowers and persistent, 1/4″ deep red fruit. Foliage emerges reddish purple, turning red-tinted green in the summer. Good disease resistance.
