Flowering Crabapple trees are a delightful ornamental tree, filled with pink or white blossoms in the spring which draw honeybees like a magnet. Many crabapples develop for those who wish to make jelly. Our 25 year old trees have developed small trees at the base with their own roots that we have dug and transplanted.
