This beautiful hardy tree grows upright with an open habit around 30' in height with a 20-30' spread. It is very ornamental and provides fair cover for farmstead windbreaks, wildlife and riparian plantings, and highway beautification. The Dolgo Crabapple produces pink buds that open to fragrant, white flowers. The bright red to purple fruits ripen in August and are about the size of small plums and are excellent for jelly making and spicy butters which is good eating for humans as well as great browse for birds and wildlife. Typical crabapple fruits remain a good food source for wildlife through the fall.
