Tina Crabapple

Malus Sargentii "Tina"

This is the third year of bloom in our yard for the Malus Sargentii "Tina" crabapple. I had it picked when designing the medieval herb garden for it's dwarf habit. The blooms are blush, open cream, then turn white when fully open. The fruit is small but prolific. I really love it's parent, the classic Sargent Crabapple, but this is one of the finest cultivars where space is an issue. The short history of crabapples can be found on the Monvoria website.
