Flowering crabapple trees are very popular early March flowering trees for large landscape gardens. The distinctive fluffy, cottony flowers completely encircle leafless branches with single or double stacked blooms that vary in colors of white, pink and red. Shiny, tiny green leaves may appear within the globular clusters of flowers soon after the flowers appear, and rapidly increase in length as the flowers fade.

Flowering Crabapple trees are in the same family as normal apple trees but have fruits that are less than 2 inches in diameter. The smaller fruits of Crabapple Trees often remain on the tree until spring because of the bitter taste and are preferred by birds.
Spring snow white crabapple trees begin flowering as the green leaves appear. The clusters of white flowers last well, sometimes as long as two weeks and the blooms fill the air with a pleasant fragrance.
Crabapple Trees make beautiful ornamental trees because of the abundant flower production.
