Midwest crabapple is a medium-sized tree growing to 20 feet. It will have a rounded crown when open and will maintain its branches close to the ground. It is extremely hardy and disease resistant. The small apples are only 1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter. The persistent fruit makes excellent wildlife food throughout the fall and winter. The white blossoms are especially attractive during the spring. Crabapple is good for single row windbreaks where a shorter tree is needed, and between the central and outside rows of multi-row windbreaks. Avoid planting close to redcedar or juniper to reduce the potential for cedar-apple rust.
