Bright Pink Blooms Every Spring

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.

Planting & Care



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



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


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.

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 Robinson Crabapple again after the transplant is complete.

planting mix for robinson crabapple tree?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2014
Best Answer: We just used a nice rich potting soil-compost mix from the nursery....nothing special. We did put some low fencing around the trunk to prevent the pesky rabbits from chewing its bark. We are watering regularly during dry periods.

when is the best time to plant in zone 8 ?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2014
Best Answer: The best time to plant the Robinson Crabapple in zone 8 is in the early Spring or early Fall, however if your temperatures aren't scorching hot in the 90's or above it will be fine to go ahead and plant now.

when should this be planted in zone 4?
Briana Y on Aug 19, 2015
Best Answer: I live in zone 5. I planted this tree in September 2014. I have always planted trees in the fall (if possible). They always do better in my zone if they have the winter to settle in. This tree is already beautiful and even had a few blooms in the spring.

Will 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.


Trimming & Pruning

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.
