New Product!

An exceptional ornamental, the Indian Summer Crabapple tree will grace your garden with clusters of rosy-red flowers in spring, followed by glossy, dark green foliage and ruby red fruits. These crabapples mature in the fall and persist into winter, giving you a long season of interest.

Perfect for your cottage garden as an accent piece that will attract wildlife! As a relative of the domestic apple, crabapples are grown more for their flowers than their fruits, which are smaller and better suited for preserves rather than snacking.

The Indian Summer is also a good pollinator for many kinds of eating apples. Making it a staple on homesteads and in orchards. This dependable landscape tree is disease-resistant and easy to grow, even in clay soil and urban landscapes. This tree has good resistance to apple scab and excellent resistance to cedar apple rust and fireblight.
