Japanese Crabapple Growing and Maintenance Tips

Needs lots of space to accommodate its spread and should not be planted too close to buildings or roads. Use as a specimen, in small groups or mixed with other cultivars. Crabapples have visual appeal in the spring with their abundance of showy flowers. Added appeal lies in the fall and winter with their colourful fruit that is attractive to birds.
