A favorite of songbirds, butterflies and bees, the Roselow Crabapple tree is often grown as a shrub but can grow to 18-20 feet as a tree. It is one of the smaller varieties of crabapple trees.
The Roselow Crabapple tree offers vividly colored flowers, leaves and fruit. In spring, pink buds appear and blossom into attractive and fragrant white flowers. These delicate blooms stand out in contrast to the tree’s deep green foliage. These green leaves will transition to yellow in autumn.
Prior to the leaves falling, red fruit, about the size of a pea (1/2”) appear on the trees. These will remain throughout much of the winter. While the Roselow is a smaller tree, it yields a large fruit crop with an average of 27 pounds per tree.
These trees adapt to most soils but need adequate moisture. The trees grow best in full sunlight. Hardiness Zone: 4-7.
