Positive ViburnumValley On Feb 4, 2007, ViburnumValley from Scott County, KY (Zone 5b) wrote:

'Adams' crabapple has graced landscapes for many years (originating in 1947), and is still one of the finest pink-flowering standard sized crabs available.

It is very disease resistant, is a heavy annual bearer of deep pink 1.5" flowers, and persistent dark glossy small red fruit. It has performed well from MA to SC to the midwest states.

'Adams' crabapple belongs in anyone's top ten full-sized crab collection.
