Why the Tina Sargent Flowering Crabapple?

Sargent Tina Crabapple is a dwarf flowering tree that scores big on a very short list of very small trees for the landscape. Whether your garden is large or small, you’ll find the room for this sweet little Crabapple tree. Wherever it’s planted—by your front porch, backyard patio, pool, or in a cozy courtyard—it will be the star of the show. Its built-in disease resistance means that your Sargent Tina Crab will always look sharp, from the time its cherry-red buds burst forth into a cloud of white flowers to the time winter-resident songbirds pick off the last of the vivid red crabapple fruits. And disease resistance also means low-maintenance for you!

Charles Sargent was appointed Director of the fledgling Arnold Arboretum at Harvard in 1873. Although he was a graduate of Harvard, he was no Ivory Tower intellectual when it came to building the tree collections. He got his hands dirty collecting trees himself—sometimes on the other side of the world. He brought back the dwarf “Sargent” Crabapple from Japan in 1892.  Sometime before 1972, William McReynolds of Hooks Nursery near Chicago sowed some Sargent seeds (by the seashore?) and got this super-small cutie-pie. It’s named after his granddaughter.

How to use in the landscape?

This tiny Tina is perfect for small gardens! A very small ornamental Crabapple, Sargent Tina can fit in urban gardens or take part in a wildlife garden in a larger yard. Pink flower buds open to white fragrant flowers in spring - a treat for hummingbirds and honeybees. Tiny bright red crabapples appear in fall - a treat for your feathered friends. Sargent Tina Crabapple is a magnificent little tree - and a treat for you!

Why Bower & Branch?

At Bower & Branch, it’s our job to know and grow trees… especially big trees.

- Trusted, Experienced Growers

- Trusted, Knowledgeable Expertise

- Trusted Brand of Quality Trees Across the United States

We do the hard part. Our trees and plants are grown and cared for by only the best, local growers for years before they find their forever home in your landscape. Bower & Branch is known for having hard-to-find, substantial sizes and selection. The quality of our trees and plants are consistent in health and vigor—always ready for immediate impact in your garden and instant curb appeal. We never rush our trees to reach a ‘grade size.’ Our trees are grown for quality height, vigor, health and age.

We believe in empowering homeowners with the truth about strong, healthy and structurally sound plants that are grown to perform in the ground after they leave the nursery for home delivery, always fresh inventory from the grower.

How To Plant

Now that you have chosen your dwarf Crabapple, it's time to choose the right spot for it. Crabapples want just a few basics; lots of sun, well drained soil, watering thru summer droughts and occasional fertilizing.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements Fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.

How To Prune

Prune your crabapple tree in late winter. Remove any broken or crossing branches or suckers at the base of the tree. Also remove any branches that grow along the trunk from the ground up to the main body of your Crabapple.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.

We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees, Size A and larger, will take approximately 14 – 28 days to be delivered. - Size AA &AAA will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier.

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 AA, A, B, C and larger scale. 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!
