Gardeners' Notes:


On Nov 30, 2006, EAPierce from Idaho Falls, ID (Zone 5a) wrote:

Hardy crabapple, relatively easy to care for. White flowers are fragrant and beautiful, but what makes Spring Snow really exceptional is that it doesn't fruit. Anyone who wants an ornamental crabapple without the fuss of having to clean up fruit that birds don't eat would really appreciate this one.
