Our Favorite Trees: Royal Raindrops Crabapple

Royal Raindrops Crabapple

“What is that stunning tree in bloom right now?!!”
Could it be the ‘Royal Raindrops’ Crabapple?
This is one of our showiest trees, giving great landscape interest in all four seasons! Beginning with abundant blooms in April, ‘Royal Raindrops’ quickly follows with purple foliage in summer, tiny maroon-red crabapples and excellent orange-red leaves in the fall, and ends with persistent fruit for wildlife in the winter.

Things to keep in mind when planting:

– Full sun
– 15-20′ x 12-16′ (hxw)
– Low maintenance
– Tolerant of clay soils
