'Adirondack' crabapple was introduced by the US National Arboretum after I started my career in landscape and horticulture. Since there are over 1000 named crabapples, what was one more going to add? That proved to be a silly sentiment.

'Adirondack' brings all of the most desirable traits of a small ornamental tree for the landscape, and excels at most. It flowers prolifically; it is highly disease resistant; it provides persistent fruit into winter; and it comes in a narrow obovate upright form that fits more smaller residential situations than many standard sized crabapples.
