Why Prairifire Crabapple Trees?
The Prairifire Crabapple is showy all year long. Plant several along your driveway and create a grand entrance for your guests, no matter what time of year they arrive.
You'll get a rush of warm color in the spring. The spring months deliver gorgeous purple and red leaves to the Prairifire Crabapple, while tons of pink-magenta flowers welcome vibrant color. While your neighbors' yards fade in the summer heat, your Prairifire will still bring magnificent warm hues to your landscape.
Even in winter, this tree still brings warmth to your yard. The bark of the Prarifire is a mix of gray and deep orange, with cherry-like berries that persist into the chilly months. As the first frost hits your region, the Prairifire still manages to stand out and add warmth.
And there's no mess left for you to clean up. The birds love this tree so much that you won't have to worry about fruit falling on your lawn. You can enjoy the beauty of this tree without worrying about withered fruit littered on your grass.
Most Crabapples succumb to disease after several years, but the Prairifire stands strong. So, you don't have to worry about keeping a constant eye for pests and ailments, and you won't have to use harsh chemicals or sprays.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Prarifire Crabapple will perform best in well-drained soil that is mildly acidic. Place in a spot in your yard that receives full, unfiltered sun.
Once you've selected your location, dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate the root ball, place your tree and backfill the soil. Finally, water the surrounding area to settle the roots.
2. Watering: If you live in a hot or dry area, water your Prairifire twice a week. Crabapples in moderate climates can survive on rainfall alone. But if you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down for dryness.
3. Fertilizing: Add a 5-5-5 fertilizer in early spring each year.
4. Pruning: The best time to prune your Prairifire is at the end of spring before the summer buds arrive. Remove any dead or damaged branches, crossing branches or crowded sections that prevent airflow.
