Malus Prairifire

Few trees have as much year-round interest as the crabapple and few crabapples are as beautiful and disease resistant as Prairifire. Prairifire starts the spring with a profusion of rose-pink flowers just as the leaves emerge. As summer progresses the leaves turn from purple-red to dark green and red fruit forms that persist well into the winter. The diseases that affect many crabapples don’t phase this tree and its rounded crown, which will not exceed 20' tall, makes it a perfect choice for planting under utility lines or in masses.
Exposure: Full sun
Soil: Well-drained
