Neutral Malus2006 On Feb 26, 2008, Malus2006 from Coon Rapids, MN (Zone 4a) wrote:

A few can be found on the University of Minnesota St. Paul campus - so definitely zone 4 hardy. Have interesting bark but a bit bland foliage during the summer. Very underused species.

Excellent small tree for residences. Attractive bark (peels as it ages), nice shape and dark green foliage. Great in zones 4 - 8.
