Crabapples are ornamental trees closely related to common apple trees and are distinguished by fruit size. There are approximately 100 commonly planted varieties of apple trees. Crabapples make an excellent addition to Utah landscapes as they are considered to be drought tolerant, low maintenance, and versatile trees that can withstand the sometimes harsh climate conditions in Utah. Crabapples proved year round interest with profuse spring bloom, bright fall colors, and persistent fruit that can be brightly colored and attractive to native birds in the winter months.
