Design Ideas: One of the best new cultivars, 'Royal Raindrops' is a broadly rounded tree with vibrant and abundant burgundy-red spring flowers. Red-purple fruit appear in mid-July and remain firm until early October. The tree has beautiful, cut-leaf foliage. New leaves are wine red in color and mature to green with burgundy overtones and eventually turn orange-red in fall.

Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune as needed to remove dead or damaged wood.

History

While all crabapples are technically edible, the fruit of most ornamental crabapples is not palatable without first cooking and sweetening the fruit.
