Quick Overview

Why it rocks:

Prairifire Pink Flowering Crabapple is one of the best ornamental trees for home landscape use. With its distinctive horizontal shape, Prairifire Crabapple makes a definite statement in the landscape. This tree is smothered in stunning fragrant reddish-fuchsia flowers along the branches in mid spring and a persistent small purple fruit in fall. The dark purple-green foliage turns to yellow in fall, and the distinctive dark reddish-purple bark adds interest to any yard. Prairifire Crabapple is our most recommended Pink Flowering Crabapple variety. 

Where to put it:

Great for privacy and accent, the Flowering Crabapple is extremely versatile in the landscape. This tree may be used in planting beds around the house, on property lines, to anchor the corners of your house, or in open areas of the lawn. This is a low-branched tree, so keep in mind that it will block the view of anything you put it in front of. Crabapple adds a native look to the landscape, and looks great in odd numbered clusters. This tree should be kept at least 10ft away from buildings. 

What it needs:

Flowering Crabapple is an extremely tolerant tree which can grow in nearly any conditions.
