Show Time™ Crabapple Malus x
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
The large, densely-clustered fuchsia red flowers turn the branches into columns of lush color. Deep green foliage has red tones of its own, especially as it emerges. In fall, red fruits glisten among the bright orange and red leaves. Recommended as a replacement for ‘Prairifire’ by Ohio State University.
