Snowdrift is one of the best crabapples for flowers, fruit, and foliage. Abundant white flowers emerge from pink buds. 3/8 inch orange red fruit. 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.
