Everyone loves the incredible color of the Robinson Crabapple. You get huge, soft pink blooms in the spring, decorative fruit in the fall and textured bark.
The new Robinson Crabapple resists many disease and pest problems that some of the older varieties of crabapples were plagued by.
You also get to enjoy some of the first blooms of spring!
The Robinson Crabapple is an early season bloomer… soft pink blossoms and conspicuous fruit make this an ideal specimen tree.
You’ll love how this fast growing flowering tree attracts wildlife… birds and butterflies just can’t resist its berries.
Robinson Crabapples are a huge hit because they're so unique. They grow up to 15-20 ft. tall, but still demand attention. Not only are they attractive, but they're extremely easy to grow. They make any beginner feel like a master gardener.
The Robinson Crabapple is one of our most popular flowering trees, so be sure to get yours now while we have them in stock.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Robinson 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.
Next, separate the roots of your Robinson 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.
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 Robinson 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.
