This Crab is a small tree with pretty white flowers in spring followed by yellowish-green fruit in fall. It has spines and deeply toothed, dark green leaves that turn yellow in fall. It's more adaptable and faster growing than the average crabapple. A good choice for naturalistic areas.

This trouble-free crab is a time-honored favorite. A profuse number of fragrant white flowers emerge from dark red buds in May, smothering the branches; the flowering may be heavy one year and lighter the next. Bright red, 1/3" to 1/2" berries ripen during during the summer and are enjoyed by birds. Dark green leaves with excellent disease resistance turn golden yellow in fall. Mounded, dense branching and wide spreading, Sargent makes a beautiful stand-alone specimen and can also be trimmed into formal rounded shapes.
Plants are constantly growing, ever-changing, and therefore unique. The plant you receive may vary from the photo, but rest assured, holds the same glorious potential!
Lilac, China Snow Pekin
China Snow is an underutilized all-season ornamental tree with beautiful flowers, foliage and bark. Showy creamy white flower panicles at the branch tips emerge in early summer. The fragrance is privet-like. Dark green, disease free leaves turn yellow in fall. The leaves and stems are smaller and finer than Japanese tree lilac's, giving this tree a more refined appearance. Outstanding amber-cherry-red exfoliating bark can be admired year round. Makes a superb accent tree near the patio or in the front yard.
