Purple Prince Crabapple


Purple Prince Crabapple is the show stopper here at Grasshopper Gardens. In spring, it has ovate purple-bronze leaves that gradually turn green in summer and then golden in fall. Its rosy red single flowers mature into purple fruits that persist into winter and attract birds. Because it matures quickly as a young tree this is one of the best purple leaf crabapple we have.  Excellent resistance to scab, fireblight and cedar-apple rust. This crabapple also requires little maintenance, requiring little to not water and staying compact for small yards. (*Caliper size of tree trunk)
