 COMMON NAME: Crabapple Tre

Prairifire Crabapple (Malus Prairifire') is a gorgeous, pink flowering Crabapple tree with truly outstanding ornamental features. This improved variety is a breakthrough Crabapple and delivers many positive attributes for today's smaller lots.

Modern landscapes need to look good all year long. When young, upright branches bring sprightly energy to your Spring Garden. As the tree matures, Prairifire Crabapple tree develops into a beautifully rounded outline with an attractive, symmetrical appeal.

With lovely, glossy, dark-red bark, the evenly distributed branches look beautiful smothered in vibrant, clear, pink flowers to herald the start of the growing season. Prairifire Crabapple flowers appear on bare branches. Pretty red buds open to bright, rich, pink, five-petaled flowers, which are borne in clusters on bare branches. Bold new foliage emerges close behind.

The foliage is slightly smaller than most all other Crabapple cultivars and emerges deep purple. As they develop and expand, a deep, dark-green overcast allows the purple haze beneath to show through. You'll love this pretty effect.

It looks great in fall when the Prairifire leaves close out the season with an exquisite orange tint. The glowing fall color is very showy.

Maintenance Notes: 

We recommend adding a layer of mulch to the base of the tree. This will help conserve water and protect the root system.

When watering, like other trees, create a regular watering schedule during the first growing season (Once a week is fairly normal). Then, once it is established, give it a soak when it is thirsty!
