Easy to Grow Flowering Tree with Dark Pink Blooms

Raise your neighbor's curiosity with this unique, colorful tree. Intense red flower buds bloom into a cloud of bright purple-pink flowers. New leaves appear early in the season, and are a rich coppery red.

The Profusion Crabapple is extremely hardy, resisting disease and pests.

The tree does well out in the country as well as in urban areas. This lovely Crabapple is not bothered by pollution or salt, and is unattractive to browsing deer.

Profusion is not picky about soil types, making it easy to grow in any location.

Profusion is an excellent flowering tree for small yards where a designer touch is desired. The rounded, somewhat weeping tree only grows to 15-20 feet tall with a broad canopy that stretches no wider than 25 feet.

You will love your landscape with this standalone showpiece... planted where you need a focal point all season long.

Profusion Crabapple Tree
I live in Wyoming and was very unsure that the Profusion Crabapple Tree that I had delivered would thrive with the Wyoming wind. To my surprise it is doing very well and growing beautifully.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Profusion Crabapple

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Profusion Crabapple.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Profusion Crabapple gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Profusion Crabapple again after the transplant is complete.

my profusion tree is losing leaves does it need fertilizer which I have not done yet?
Jeanette B on Jul 17, 2015
Best Answer: Hmm. There are so many things that could cause it to lose leaves. I know that apple trees don't like too heavy clay soil where they sit in water too long. Or possibly there are air pockets around the roots when planted that have stressed the tree? Mine is doing very well here in SoCal. I planted it in a mix of worm castings, biochar, soil, perlite and organic fertilizer. I water it about 15 min, 3x per week. Hope that helps.

will the root system displace my pavers? Or kill my lawn and plants around it?
Dawn E on Jun 1, 2015
Best Answer: NO, absolutely not. The roots stay safely below ground and do not form above ground root bumps like maples or oaks. Nothing should die below it as it has relatively small leaves and lets plenty of light and water in below. Below mine I planted ground cover of Lariope, Dusty Millers and Marigolds.

Was wandering how the roots grow. More downward or more outwards? Where I'm wanting to plant is near a septic system.
