Is the Royalty crabapple a universal pollinator for most apple trees?
peaches on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In addition to being a lovely tree, it does work as a great pollen source! Due to its time and duration in bloom, it overlaps the bloom times of most apple trees.
Will Royalty pollinate a gravenstein apple? Does Royalty have fall color?
DeNae S on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Yes, Royalty (or any crabapple) will pollinate a Gravenstein. The fall color of Royalty is a brilliant deep-purple and is quite striking.
Can the fruit of this tree be used to make crabapple jelly?
Rae M on May 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Royalty Crabapple is an ornamental tree with brilliant color and edible fruit. One would look impressive as a shade or street tree in your yard.

This is one of the best small trees (15' at maturity) there is for outstanding color. It???s simply one of the most beautiful trees you???ll ever have. Just the leaves alone are a study in grandeur. Their emergence in spring will clothe your tree in a cacophony of purple hues unlike anything you???ve ever seen before.

Deep pink flowers will beckon
pollinators. Has a fragrance.

Fall will bring ripened ??-inch purple-red fruit, providing a beneficial food source for wildlife. Don't think this variety is necessarily the right one for jelly making fruit

Nice tree :)
This is a very nice tree. The foliage is a lovely shade of purple. I am actually surprised by how well it's doing. We have sandy soil and very bitter winters here in Wisconsin and it's growing beautifully!

Royalty Crabapple
A fast growing tree with excellent color. Unfortunately it seems very susceptible to
disease and needs to be sprayed regularly with a fungicide and insecticide. This will be a big problem when the tree grows larger.

Royalty Flowering Crabapple
I highly recommend this product! I had never ordered a tree before. When it arrived, it looked like a dead twig. I didn't know what to think.We followed the directions precisely. Within days there were signs of life.Within a couple of months we actually saw leaves and little branches! It is now one year old and I wish I could show it to you. It is branching out beautifully and has made a wonderful addition to my front yard. I would not hesitate to buy another product.

beautiful tree
My tree was planted last year so it's not very big yet, but I can already tell it will be a lovely shaped tree in the future. It's healthy and growing robustly and the beautiful plum color will be a gorgeous addition to our landscape.

Beautiful Tree
My father had a flowering crabapple tree out on the farm. He always wanted a "red" tree and this one was one he liked. My wife wanted a "red" tree in the front lawn. I planted this tree and it's beautiful. It's only about 4 foot high so far, but we really love this tree.

Loving my crabapple tree
Our tree is growing like a champ. Either it is still too young to bloom in the spring, or our late frost this year destroyed what blossoms that would have been there. Hopefully, next year will bring blooms.
