Tips For Care

Growing this hardy tree is rewarding, even for gardening gurus! But be careful! These trees are picky about their personal bubble. Beauty needs room to grow! Picking a spot for these dramatic trees to grow is key.

They thrive in a full sun environment to soak up the sun and prefer well-drained soil. They also love an open area with optimal airflow to reduce the chance of disease even more!

This modern crabapple tree has improved disease and pest resistance compared to its ancestors. They aren’t too picky when it comes to the type of soil they’re planted in or air quality. In fact, they thrive in inner-city environments.

Choose a moist site in enriched, well-drained soil that is mulched to further retain moisture and insulate the root system. Drought-tolerant once established, you’ll enjoy a nearly maintenance-free tree!
