Profusion Crabapple

Easy to Grow Flowering Tree with Dark Pink Blooms


Height

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better results the first full growing season.

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.

It's Easy to Plant 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.



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.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

kathy on Jun 30, 2014
Best Answer: The Fuji Apple Tree will cross pollinate with either another Fuji Apple, Gala, Red Delicious, McIntosh, Honey Crisp, Pink Lady, Johnathan, Granny Smith or Yellow Delicious Apple Trees. You have quite a few options to consider. Area 9 is a great area for the Fuji Apple Tree.

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.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
