Fall colors of a crabapple

This is Malus ‘sargentii’. I have been working to build branching more than worrying about flowers and fruit. It has flowered each year, but this is the first year fruits have remained on the tree. Here is a shot from early November, with some fall color and the drying crabapples remaining.

The branching structure is still coarse but improving.

    1. All malus species need to grow blooming spurs from which they will repeatedly bloom, year after year. These take time, and if accidentally pruned off, will take even longer to reappear. Once you get flowers, note the location of that spur so you don’t accidentally remove it.
