Crabapple

Malus

Crabapple's clustered pom-pom flowers light up the spring, but the trees attract even more attention in winter landscapes. Scarlet, gold, or orange fruit dangles from bare boughs, attracting flocks of birds. The craggy trunks and gnarled branches are also picturesque in mixed borders. Crabapple varieties flower in white, pink, or deep rose. They prefer well-drained, acidic soil but will tolerate heavier soil.
