Unique Features: The Spring Snow Crabapple is one of the larger varieties of crabapple. It grows moderately, into a broad upright oval form. The medium green leaves turn a bright yellow in the fall. The clusters of large 1 ¼”, white spring flowers open from dark pink buds and can cover most of the tree. The Spring Snow is virtually fruitless, making it one of the most popular crabapples. The lack of fruit also allows it to do double duty as a smaller shade tree over patio. Unfortunately when it lost the fruit it also lost some disease resistance. During the growing season the Spring Snow should be checked regularly for Fire Blight, and pruned accordingly. All crabapples are on the Town of Parker Preferred Species list.
