There should be a winter gardening forum here, wouldn't you say? Not just winter sowing, but winter vegetable gardening, winter shrub care (some shrubs even bloom in the winter!), winter tree care, snow apples etc.

Yes, snow apples. They are a variety of Fameuse apple tree that bears apples in the winter.

That is interesting - is it a sweet variety? What is the normal color? Does the tree still drop it's flowers in fall?

You mean leaves? Yes, they drop ther leaves, but later and slower than most apple varieties do. Kind of the way crab apples do.

I've never heard of that. That's really cool. Do you know what zone it's hardy to?

I have to admit that most of my "winter gardening" is done inside, fooling with things like African violets! (The AV forum has been *hopping* this winter!) But I do manage an occasional round of pruning or overdue mulching!
