Hello! I am a Red Baron Flowering Crab, best known for my abundance of deep red springtime flowers, and my showy dark red crab fruits which I carry from early to late fall. Not only are my blooms and fruit highly ornamental, my foliage puts on a show as well by shifting from coppery-bronze to a rich green in the springtime. I am a high maintenance tree that will require regular care and upkeep to keep me beautiful, and I prefer to be pruned in the late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. I will thrive in any soil type or pH, and since I am so tolerant of urban pollution, you can plant me right in the city! I am happiest, healthiest and most beautiful when I am grown in full sunlight and my soil is kept moist!

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water newly planted trees deeply once a week during the first growing season.
  • Maintenance: Regularly check for pests and diseases.
  • Pruning: Prune in late fall after the leaves have dropped. Remove any dead or diseased branches and shape the tree as desired.
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth begins. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to excessive growth and reduced fruit production.

Planting trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer. Backfill with fresh soil if needed and water thoroughly. Water regularly until roots are established to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your new tree or plant!
