Description

This disease resistant cross by Dr. Dan Dayton, University of Illinois, has especially good foliage retention during summer. It blooms later than most crabs. The bark is a glossy dark red with numerous prominent lenticels, and the fruit does not drop. In May innumerable crimson buds open to dark purplish-red, one and one-half inch wide flowers that do not fade. The emerging sharp-toothed leaves, a deep red-purple when young, mature to a dark tawny green for the growing season. As fall approaches the foliage changes to an outstanding orange, a perfect foil for the half-inch in diameter, shiny, red to purple persistant fruit, a favorite of songbirds.

Height: 15-20 Feet Width: 20 Feet Form: Upright Flower Color: Red Bloom Season: Spring Foliage Color: Green, Purple Fall Color: Orange Fruit Color: Red Growth Rate: Medium Fragrant

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.

Hardiness Zone: 4, 5, 6, 7 Light Needs: Full Sun
