Firebird Crabapple


Firebird Crabapple

Malus 8x10' Open-pollinated seedlings of Sargent. Michael Yanny intro, Johnson’s Nursery, Menomonee Falls, WI, 1980.

Offspring of one of our best crabs ever—the one and only Sargent, which is more horizontal than tall—this young’un is slightly more upright than its parent but more compact in form topping out at 8' and not much wider than 10'.

Perfect for smaller spaces or for the front side of a tall border. Pleasingly delicate pink-to-red buds give way to a cloud of single white blossoms in spring and pea-sized red fruits in fall that stay firm through March. A delightful additional to any home garden.

Disease resistant. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
