Malus sargentii

Malus sargentii
Sargent's crab apple
Malus sargentii

Common name Sargent's crab apple
Family rosaceae
Life cycle tree
Flowers pink (May)
Light sun-part shade

Our two crab apple trees came bundled together as part of an Arbor Day Society start-a-garden ten-pack. But even though they hailed from the same source, they have taken on rather different appearances. Because of rather different circumstances and pruning philosophies between the one in our back yard island and the one in our side garden, their stature is different, one growing more shrub-like, the other with a more upright central leader. But the real difference shows in fall: one sports yellow fruit, the other red. Of course, we like 'm both, for both their mid-spring blossoms and their autumn fruit display.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
