Description

Hello! I am a Red Baron Flowering Crab, best known for my abundance of deep red springtime flowers, and my showy dark red crab fruits which I carry from early to late fall. Not only are my blooms and fruit highly ornamental, my foliage puts on a show as well by shifting from coppery-bronze to a rich green in the springtime. I am a high maintenance tree that will require regular care and upkeep to keep me beautiful, and I prefer to be pruned in the late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. I will thrive in any soil type or pH, and since I am so tolerant of urban pollution, you can plant me right in the city! I am happiest, healthiest and most beautiful when I am grown in full sunlight and my soil is kept moist!

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water newly planted trees deeply once a week during the first growing season.
  • Maintenance: Regularly check for pests and diseases.
  • Pruning: Prune in late fall after the leaves have dropped. Remove any dead or diseased branches and shape the tree as desired.
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth begins. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to excessive growth and reduced fruit production.

Planting a trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer.
