Crabapple trees produce not only beautiful blossoms, but have outstanding attributes: fruit colors of yellow, orange, red and purple that remain on the trees throughout the fall and winter. These winter-persistent fruits provide an important food source for local wildlife. The collection dates from the 1920’s and includes many species, such as, Liset, Hall’s and Prairie Maed crabapples. Management and cultivation of crabapple species is a central focus of the east side collection. Join us and learn more about our vibrant collection.
