An upright ornamental tree that's taking the gardening world by storm, with showy rose-pink flowers in spring followed by persistent bright red fruit in fall; makes a great accent for smaller home landscapes, needs well-drained soil and full sun.

Ornamental Features:
Pink Spires Flowering Crab is draped in stunning clusters of fragrant pink flowers with lavender overtones along the branches in mid spring, which emerge from distinctive ruby-red flower buds before the leaves. It has attractive coppery-bronze-tipped dark green foliage which emerges brick red in spring. The pointy leaves are highly ornamental and turn yellow in fall. The fruits are showy red pomes carried in abundance from early fall to late winter.

It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
