Crabapple Trees need to be planted in a position of full sun. Without this, they will struggle to produce the abundance of flowers we have come to associate with flowering Crabapple Trees. This tree in a shaded position will, therefore, produce much less fruit, and it will grow into a much less attractive shape, the branches stretching out to find a source of light, instead of forming a dense mass.

Donald Wyman Crabapple | Crab apple, Flowering trees, Red bud
Flowering crabapples ( Malus species) are popular ornamental trees in Colorado landscapes. The Front Range is known for its crabapple flowering, announcing the arrival of spring.
Adams ( Malus 'Adams'):
75 feet high and 75 feet wide rounded form rose colored flowers dark red, persistent fruit.
Disease resistance: scab (fair), fireblight (excellent), rust (fair), mildew (fair).
Crabapple Trees are fairly easy to maintain and don’t require any special pruning routine. Simply remove suckers as soon as they appear and cut away any dead or damaged branches periodically.
There are approximately 6555 different known varieties, of which perhaps 655 are most commonly planted nationally. These vary by mature size, growth habit, flower color, and the size/color of fruit. About 75 varieties are commonly available and planted in Colorado.
From fall into winter, crabapples put on a terrific display.
A very prolific bloomer and fast grower, Malus 'Purple Prince' is a small, rounded, deciduous tree that is perfect for any garden. Opening from bright carmine-red buds, masses of fragrant, vibrant rose-red, single flowers appear in mid spring, fading slightly to a pleasing rose. Draped in clusters along the upward spreading branches, they provide a truly spectacular display.
egarded as an outstanding Flowering Crabapple,.
Spectacular on their own, flowering crabapples.

No address listed anywhere for the plant sale. Very frustrating for a first-timer.
Crabapples are fairly strong-wooded and suffer little ice/snow damage. Pruning should involve early selection of scaffold branches, removal of crossing branches and branches originating too close to each other on the trunk. Depending on growth habit, lower branches may be removed to allow safe passage under the tree. Prune out ‘water sprouts’ that grow straight up and bear few flowers. Pruning can be done before flowering or leafing in late winter/early spring, or after blooming. Pruning should be completed by June 6 as flower buds for the following spring are initiated in June-July.
Lovely in bloom and form, Malus 'Coralburst' is a compact deciduous tree forming a very dense, symmetrically rounded head with tiny lush green leaves. Opening from coral-pink buds, masses of fragrant, semi-double, pink blossoms appear in mid spring.
The Pacific Northwest may not be the best place to enjoy.
