Crab - Royal Raindrops Red Flw bin 23 !
Superior disease resistance, adaptability, plus heat and drought tolerance make this unique crab apple a crown jewel among trees.
Refined, uniquely shaped leaves emerge glossy deep purple and maintain their rich color through the heat of summer. Fall color is a medley of bronze, orange and purple. Tiny, persistent, bright red fruits appearing in late summer are prized by wildlife and add winter interest.
Strong branch angles and upright growth habit minimize the pruning and shaping needed to develop a balanced canopy. A top performer in windy climates, sturdy branches don’t become windswept as is the case with lesser cultivars. More vigorous than other purple-leaved cultivars, Royal Raindrops® Crab apple quickly gains caliper while developing a sturdy, well-tapered trunk.
