wonderful little tree
Reviewed By: Susan (Port Hadlock, Wa)
We bought this tree last year. My poor little twig. But planted in a pot and put it in the garden so that it would be watered and watched over. Well this spring we planted it by our house and it has doubled in size and is covered in beautiful pink blooms.Love it!!

Doing Well
Reviewed By: Cami (Orem, Utah)
We bought this tree and planted it in March. Six months later, the tree is doing really well. Two months after we planted, there were a few beautiful pink blossoms. The tree has grown well and has very pretty leaves.

Nice
Reviewed By: Cami (Springville, Utah)
We received our tree and I was worried that it would never grow because it was just a small stick. Well I was wrong! I planted it in March and in late April we had a few beautiful pink blooms. We now have a few beautiful leaves. The tree is coming along fine and I am very happy with its growth.

Good bareroot
Reviewed By: KC (jackson, ca)
This tree came as part of a larger order, for the most part I was disappointed with the shipping and quality, but I would order this tree again. It actually was what was claimed, it has grown and leafed out and was a nice sturdy fat pencil sized 3' bareroot.

Incredibly beautiful tree!
Reviewed By: Jaye Lewis (Chilhowie, Virginia)
This flowering crab is a crabtree lover's delight. From a gorgeous abundance of hot pink blooms in spring, to deep, maroon red leaves in summer, this tree's beauty is only equaled by the abundance of tiny deep red fruit through summer and winter. This tree attracts mocking birds and all winter, fruit-loving birds. And it is bug and disease free. I intend to buy many more!

Beautiful and Reliable Flowering Tree
Reviewed By: Jaye Lewis (Chilhowie, Virginia)
"Prairie Fire Crabapple is the most beautiful, disease, and drought resistant crab that I have ever grown. The brilliant, deep pink blooms seem to explode into bloom over night. Then the lovely maroon foliage begins to peek out, while the little apples begin to form. I have four of these fragrant trees, and in their first full spring, our neighbor, who is a master gardener, cautioned us to stop planting. ""You're making us all look bad,"" she said. Do not overlook this tree."
