Two of these beauties grow wild on our farm, in the fields near the creek. One of them gets a lot of sunlight and is especially lovely.
I've been trying to grow them from seed, without success so far. Time to try cuttings, or perhaps I even need to learn how to graft onto rootstock.
The native crabapples are susceptible to rust and will suffer some leaf loss in summer, but if planted at the edge of the woods they just blend in with the other trees.
Happy Friday, and join Katerina at roses and stuff for more Blooming Fridays!
