'Silver Cloud' crabapple is an excellent introduction from the octoploid Satin Series developed by Father John Fiala. It's a small rounded tree with leathery green disease free foliage; fragrant white spring flowers; and golden/copper/orange fruit in the fall.

This should be another great addition for landscapes that can only fit a smaller tree.
