Silver Moon

Silver Moon Crabapple

Malus 25x15' Probably M. baccata. Robert Simpson intro, Simpson Nursery Co, Vincennes, IN.

White buds and dense masses of single white flowers. Spectacular in bloom. Flowers open very late, ten days after most other crabs, making it potentially useful to those searching for a pollinator for late-blooming apple varieties.

Persistent dark red ½" fruit. Purple foliage and upright oval vase-shaped form.

Disease free although may have some susceptibility to fireblight in high-disease areas. One of John Fiala’s top-ten favorites. Probably Z3/4. Maine Grown. (2½-5' bare-root trees)
