Fountain Crabapple

4 x 6' Fiala intro, 1950.

Low and slow growing “shrub form” dwarf weeper. Might be the smallest crab variety to be found. Ours is only 4' 2" after 25 years. Grows about 2" each year. Great in a small space or as a feature in a low perennial bed. Pink buds open to gigantic 2" single white flowers. Dark red ½" fruits are persistent through winter. Leaves can be smaller and irregularly shaped. Exhibits some resistance to scab. Has become the parent to a whole line of flashy new small weepers. We saw this one in grower Delton Curtis’s yard and thought it some cunning. (That’s how we say ‘adorable’ in Maine.)

Very rare in the trade and first time in our catalog. Welcome, little weeper. Z4. Maine Grown. (Note: this tree is 18-24" at time of shipping.)
