    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

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 Pollination

Profusion Crabapple Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Profusion Crabapple Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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.

Profusion Crabapple
The tree was delivered with no leaves. They are literally sticks. So currently I have sticks sticking out of the ground. I know that the leaves are cosmetic but I would have thought there would have been some. Hopefully next year will be better.

I LOVE IT -- So do the DEER - BUT It's worth fighting for.
3 years ago I bought a tiny one in a grocery store -- about 3 feet tall -- it is now about 20 feet tall but very narrow for now due to the fact that deer massacred this poor tree until the main trunk was torn off and I am left with the two arms of the original crotch. It finally bloomed late last fall because it had been so shocked by the damage done by the deer. I am surprised it survived. The ad says that this tree is not attractive to deer, but at my house, it's the only tree the deer got after -- and they nearly killed it time and time again. I LOVE this tree -- but if you have deer in your area you need to protect it until it is too tall for the deer to reach the leaves. They'll pull and pull until they rip the branches off. Also, the bucks love to rub necks against the trunk during the rut and a small tree will just snap if the deer is big enough and leans hard on it. You need to cage this thing for the first 4 years and then do something to protect the lower trunk because the deer really gouge it. Otherwise it's gorgeous and it grows a mile a minute. It's gonna be a battle for the first 4 or 5 years but it's worth it. I use Milorganite to fertilize it -- water it often -- this year it should look really nice. Fingers crossed.

Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

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 Tree 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 Tree again after the transplant is complete.

joan k on Oct 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine in May in Maine but yes you can plant them in the fall as they are in a dormant stage.
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.
Does this tree bare fruit?
ca p on Jul 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This tree may produce very small, nonedible fruit. The birds will eat the fruit at the end of winter.
How wide is the rooting. I need trees where roots is no more than 5 feet wide or downward rooting?
hazel l on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The roots will get 15-25 foot wide.
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.
