Crabapples are relatively small ornamentals. Often called jewels of the landscape, they have great visual impact during all four seasons. They have delicate colors offered by emerging leaves and buds. Unopened flower buds may hint of one color and as flowers open, other hues are revealed in a spectacular floral display. As flowers fade the rich foliage offers another subtle contribution to the landscape. In the autumn crabapple foliage and fruit transform to vibrant colors. Falling leaves reveal the glorious color of the fruit. Winter snow accents fruit, branches and tree shape. Their fruits are eaten by many bird species.
