‘Louisa’ Crabapple


‘Louisa’ Crabapple

Malus 15x15' Introduced by Polly Hill and named for her daughter. Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., 1962.

Rose-colored buds open to cheerful single true pink fragrant flowers on an umbrella-shaped weeping form. Branches arch very slightly and then hang loosely to the ground and will sway in the breeze. Very small lemon-gold fruit with a small rose blush.

Dark green foliage. One of the highlights of a visit to the Polly Hill Arboretum on the Vineyard was seeing and photographing the original tree, still surprisingly small after 60 years. Disease resistant. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
