Positive ViburnumValley On Nov 24, 2007, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

'Orange Crush' crabapple is another tough vigorous ornamental tree developed by Fr. Fiala and introduced to commerce by the Klehms of Beaver Creek Nursery in northern IL.

It separates itself from the crabapple herd by the notable bright orange-rose to orange-crimson flowers which it bears heavily and annually. The blooms are followed by persistent maroon fruit. In the late autumn, this plant is graced with bright red to purple fall color as well.
