  • Description

    Keystone Value: The genus Malus (Crabapple) supports over 300 species of butterfly and moth caterpillars, providing food for a variety of birds and mammals.

    Sweet Crabapple (Malus coronaria) is a small attractive tree with a wide crown that grows 20′ to 30′ tall and prefers rich, moist soils in full sun. The small flowers that appear from May to June are white and usually rose-tinged. It produces small fruits that are generally considered too sour to eat but are commonly used for preserves and cider. The flowers are a magnet for native pollinators, and the fruit provides food for birds and small mammals. The branches are used as cover, nesting sites, and habitat for wildlife.

    Note: We recommend planting in groups of three to maximize fruit set.
