Certainly one of the prettiest red-leafed crabapples we’ve seen. Has a better summer color and appearance than most red-leaf crabapples. Abundant magenta-pink blossoms stand out handsomely against reddish-purple, cutleaf foliage. Shows good resistance to fireblight. Developed by J. Frank Schmidt & Son Co.
