Description:

Here's an accent tree quite unlike anything you've seen before; a dense bushy globular head is grafted onto a standard (trunk), maintains its rounded form with minimal pruning; smothered in white flowers in spring; lovely, small amber fruit in fall

Ornamental Features:

Lollipop Flowering Crabapple is blanketed in stunning clusters of fragrant white flowers along the branches in mid spring before the leaves. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves turn yellow in fall. The fruits are showy gold pomes carried in abundance from early fall right through to late winter. The rough brown bark is not particularly outstanding.

Landscape Attributes:

Lollipop Flowering Crabapple is a dense deciduous tree, selected and trained to grow in a small tree-like form with the primary plant grafted high atop a standard. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Lollipop Flowering Crabapple is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • General Garden Use

Plant Characteristics:

Lollipop Flowering Crabapple will grow to be about 10 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 10 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 4 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more.

This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.

This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
