A highly regarded accent tree smothered in rich red flowers in spring and persistent small purple fruit in fall, upright habit of growth; the definitive ornamental feature tree for the home landscape, needs well-drained soil and full sun.
Prairiefire Flowering Crab is smothered in stunning clusters of fragrant fuchsia flowers along the branches in mid spring, which emerge from distinctive red flower buds before the leaves. It has attractive dark green foliage which emerges burgundy in spring. The pointy leaves are ornamentally significant and turn yellow in fall. The fruits are showy dark red pomes carried in abundance from early to late fall. The rough dark brown bark is not particularly outstanding.
