    Features

    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.

    Top reasons to grow Show Time crabapple:
