Orange Crush Crabapple


Orange Crush Crabapple

Malus 15x15' M. Liset x M. Red Swan. Father John Fiala hybrid, Klehm Nursery intro, S. Barrington, IL, 1990.

A profuse exquisite display of single large deep crimson-pink blossoms that fade to lighter purple-pink. Rosy buds. Attractive oblong ½" maroon fruits persist. Spreading habit. Not really much orange to speak of but bright and lively. Fiala raved about the orange tint, but plants express themselves differently on different sites. Any crab fancier will recognize the expression of Liset, one of its parents and one of our favorite reds.

Fiala recommended planting a white crab and a blue spruce as companions to highlight the loveliness of this cultivar. Z4/5. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
