Dwarf Crabapple Tree
5-10 ft high
Plant crabapples in full sun and where other nearby trees will not shade them excessively. Crabapples flower and fruit best in full sun, but can tolerate light shade. Where excessively shaded, crabapples become more open, flower and fruit less, and experience more problems with powdery mildew. Planting crabapples on hot south or west exposures may force them into bloom too early and thus subject the blooms to late frost damage.
Crabapples are fairly drought-tolerant once established, needing only 15 to 20 inches of annual moisture (precipitation plus any supplemental watering). Planting them in high-maintenance turfgrass generally subjects them to more water and fertilizer than they need, often resulting in more incidence of disease. A better location is in mulched beds, receiving drip irrigation or hose-end watering that avoids leaf wetting.
