A dwarf flowering crabapple developed by the USDA for wildlife.
Very disease resistant. The small red fruits remain on trees until Spring,
until they are consumed by Robins and Cedar Waxwings.
As an apple, it is highly attractive to bees. Not grafted, so if the top is damaged or eaten it re-sprouts true to form.
