A crabapple tree in full bloom is something to behold, and the snowdrift crabapple is no exception. Its pink buds burst into a snowy white show in mid-spring. But while spring is the tree’s standout season, it does offer visual impact year-round. Glossy, deep green summer leaves change to yellow in the fall, and orange-red fruit persists through the winter, attracting the favor of feathered friends.

Crabapple trees are actually members of the rose family, Rosaceae. As with roses, there is a never-ending desire to develop a new form and give it a fanciful name. This has resulted in approximately 800 cultivars of crabapples.
