Crabapple trees covered in snow


March–May, September–November

Crabapples put on two shows each year, covering their branches with flowering in spring and fruit in fall. The 80 varieties in the Crabapple Collection, including the Donald J. Bruckmann Crabapple Collection and plantings that date back to the 1930s, flower each year with masses of rich red, deep pink, or bright white blossoms. Here you will find mature gnarled old specimens, gracefully weeping forms, and others that proudly extend their branches to the sky. The fall fruits of these trees feed birds, squirrels, and other animals that call the Garden home.
