Description: The native light-pink flowering crabapple that graces our natural areas in late April and early May. The tree has large green apples that are relished by wildlife during the winter. The tree will sucker and create a thicket. It looks best in an informal border. The tree is susceptible to apple scab, a disease that increases early leaf defoliation. In the past, the fruit of Prairie Crab Apple was used to make apple jelly, cider, and vinegar.
