Magnificent large red flowers have almost no blue in the color, making it unusual for a red-flowering crab. The 1" fruit is a very pretty red-orange and has good culinary potential for filling the jelly jars quickly. Most fruits are solid colored but some are yellow-orange on one side with a beautiful deeper red on the blush side and a nice purple matte bloom. Young foliage emerges purple-red and fades to bronzy-maroon, finally becoming green with prominent red venation that gives the tree a summer-long multicolored effect. The cherry-red veins light up on a sunny day; when it’s overcast, the whole tree has a silvery sheen. Stunning all the time. Z3/4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
