Gardeners' Notes:

Negative Tonykosto On May 16, 2007, Tonykosto from Plainfield, IL wrote:

My gorgeous 3 inch diameter profusion died suddenly in the early April freeze. While other species of crabapples bloomed profusly, this one choked. I do not reccomend for Chicago's fickle spring. I am ging the Donald Wyman route in 2 weeks.

The fruits of this tree are tiny and dark red. They are very good for jellies. The flowers are small and change colors from deep red to purplish-red to blue-pink.
