'Sarah' crabapple is rapidly becoming one of my favorites in the Father Fiala series of selections. The semi-double to double white flowers are borne in abundance, and are wonderfully fragrant.

This tree was named for Sarah Klehm, an outstanding plantswoman and co-owner of Beaver Creek Nursery in Illinois with whom I have done business and had a friendship for many years.

My tree is still relatively young (3 years in 2008), so I haven't been able to enjoy its full fruits. After the disastrous 2007 Easter freeze, I didn't think I would have a live plant. 2008 has brought better weather and full flowering, so I expect to be able to remark on abundant showy persistent orange red fruit come this fall and winter.

This tree is destined to be a top performer.
