A profusion of blossoms obscures the branches: one cloud of large double pink rose-like flowers on an upright vase-shaped tree. Buds are magenta pink and lighten as they open. Bronze-green leaves. One-inch fruit persists all winter.
Becky describes this crab: “Yes, you can barely see the branches when in bloom…it’s like a huge double rose and smells so sweet. It has many stages of beauty from the deep pink large buds to the double rose blooms, then the beautiful leaves and fruit. I’ve made jelly from the fruit which is tart and sweet at the same time. You have to pick them when ripe usually in October. If not, the birds will beat you to them.”
Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
