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 Drector 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!

How To Plant
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. As with all trees, keep your newly planted Crabapple watered. Don’t keep the soil too wet, however, moist soil is fine. Crabapples also like fertilizer, the more you give them – the more they grow. Once a year apply a simple tree fertilizer during fall to help promote new growth and flowers for the following season. Pruning Flowering Crabapples is fairly easy. Prune branches after your Crabapple is done flowering and cut off any suckers around the base of your tree whenever they appear.
How To Water
Flowering Crabapples will appreciate watering deeply, and regularly during its first few years in the ground. Irrigate weekly, and especially during long dry spells or extreme heat after it’s established.
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. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

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!
