Prairie Fire Crabapple

Ever-Changing Beauty!

Rounded 15- to 20-ft. tree presents an all-season extravaganza! First, prolific, pinkish-red blooms. Next comes new purple-maroon foliage, that matures to reddish green. Fall brings a display of red, orange and purple—accompanied by glossy red fruit. Fruit persists into fall or winter and provides food for birds. Resistant to scab, rust, fire blight and Japanese beetles.
