We have a mature sized crabapple, Malus moerlandsii 'Profusion' on the front lawn.
This truly is its most magnificent time of year.
This crabapple grows 15-30' high x 20-35' wide. It grows well in Zones 4-8 and requires full sun. It prefers well-drained loam but adapts to a range of soils. We have clay.
We're a bit late this year, but usually in early May, the tree becomes covered with fuchsia pink blossoms.
Bonus! They are FRAGRANT blossoms :)
Flowers are followed by bright red crabapples that mature in fall and may even last through the winter.
