Snowdrift CrabappleMalus 'Snowdrift'
Spectacular in flower in the spring, the Snowdrift crabapple's pink buds turn into a profusion of snowy white blossoms in April or May. This is followed by the 3/8" -1/2" round, orange-red fruits that attract birds and persist on the tree throughout the winter. The Snowdrift crab has an upright, spreading, rounded, dense crown, and can be grown as a multi-stemmed or single trunk tree. The leaves are a glossy dark green turning a dull yellow in the fall. This tree prefers a sunny location with moist, acidic, well drained soil, but can tolerate mildly alkaline, occasionally wet or dry, and clay soils. Snowdrift crab is a beautiful, hardy tree with visual impact during all four seasons.
