Lovely Crabapple!
The Snowdrift Crabapple is growing into a fine young tree. The white flowers this spring were spectacular! It came through the winter beautifully and is growing strongly. I would highly recommend this variety to any gardener looking for a vigorous white-blooming crabapple tree. All our recent purchases from Stark Nurseries have performed excellently.

Snowdrift Crabapple
This is the only kind of Snowdrift I get excited about. O planted one in 1987 in Oregon and loved it. So happy to find again at Stark Bros., I ordered 2 of then and they survived our NE Illinois spring Blizzard in May! They are blooming and growing strong. THANK YOU I would recommend to my friends!

Beautiful tree
It’s blossoms this year (3rd season) were amazing. It looks like it will be a real winner and happily pollinates my Mac Intosh apple.

Hearty little trees. I ordered three on accident, planted two and gave away the third. Planted last spring. Both are looking great this year and just bloomed this past week!
