Positive ViburnumValley On Feb 25, 2007, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

'Cranberry Lace' crabapple is an exceptional new plant introduced by Klehm Nursery, South Barrington, IL. This is an upright columnar tree to 14 ft high and 8 ft wide (4.3 m x 2.4 m) which becomes slightly vase-shaped with age.

'Cranberry Lace' flowers abundantly with rose crimson buds opening to semidouble to double flowers which are deep rose-carmine to deep pink mixed with pale pink. This show is followed by clean disease resistant foliage all summer, and leading to copious small deep red round fruit in fall.

This new tree fits perfectly into smaller areas, and is one of the better upright double-flowering crabapples.
