Malus x Royal Raindrops® PP14375

Crabapple

The crème de la crème of crabapples! Malus Royal Raindrops® (‘JFS-KW5’)boasts deeply lobed purple foliage throughout the growing season, which maintains its color even at the height of summer. Magenta pink single flowers fully cover the branches in April, creating a breathtaking display against the contrasting newly-emerging dark purple leaves. Malus Royal Raindrops® acts as a lovely specimen planting with its upright, spreading habit and satisfyingly dense foliage, even when it’s not in flower. In summer, flowers are replaced by shiny, bright red fruits that will persist on the tree into the fall, as long as they aren’t scooped up by birds! The candy red crabapples make a striking fall display against the rainbow of orange-red, maroon, and bronzy purple foliage. Aside from its multiple seasons of interest, this particular crabapple selection is revered for its disease resistance, drought tolerance, and low maintenance attitude.
