Why plant Spring Snow® Flowering Crabapple?
Whoever heard of a Crabapple tree with no crab apples? Well, in some cases, fruits may be a nuisance, and that’s when Spring Snow® Crabapple comes to the rescue. This pretty flowering tree comes in handy near sidewalks or patios where fruits might make a mess. Tolerant of city life, Spring Snow® Crab also makes a good street tree, and it’s small enough to plant under power lines, too. Though it’s lacking in the fruit department, this dependable tree produces a cloud of bright white flowers each spring, and its floral display alone earns it a place in tidy landscapes—no clean-up required!
Spring Snow® is a direct descendant of an old, super-cold-hardy Crabapple variety called ‘Dolgo,’ which originated in South Dakota in 1917. Dolgo is not grown much anymore, but Spring Snow® is still popular, due to its lack of fruits. The original Spring Snow® seedling grew for 25 years in Saskatchewan (where they see plenty of real “Spring Snows”!) before anyone noticed it and realized its potential. It was finally spotted in 1963 by A.J. Porter. A few years later it was patented in the U.S. by Inter-State Nursery of Iowa.
How to use Spring Snow® Flowering Crabapple in the landscape?
Some of us may dream of a "White Christmas", but what about a white spring?! Fragrant, pure white flowers cover the branches of this hardy Crabapple. Dark green leaves overtake this disease resistant and drought tolerant tree in summer, only to be overcome by fabulous yellow color in fall. Spring Snow® Crabapples are not only beautiful trees, but also very tidy - they don't produce fruit! I guess the birds are just gonna have to eat birdseed this winter...
Hardiness Zone: 4-8
How To Plant Spring Snow® Flowering Crabapple
Flowering Crabapples grow well in a wide range of soil conditions and should be planted in a sunny area of your yard; they can tolerate very light shade as well.
How To Water
As with all trees, keep your newly planted Crabapple watered. Don’t keep the soil too wet, however, moist soil is fine.
How To Fertilize
As you plant your new Spring Snow® Crabapple, be sure to feed it with the Elements Starter Plant Food. After that, you can fertilize in spring and fall each year!
How To Prune
Pruning your crabapple is fairly easy. Do so after flowering and remove any broken or crossing branches or suckers at the base of the tree.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
