Red Jewel Crabapple trees boast abundant white flower blooms in the spring.  Pink flower buds open to white flower pedals.  The flowers of the tree make it look like it is covered with snow.  The flowers make way for the bright red, cherry-like fruit to appear.  Crabapple’s decorate the tree all summer long.  This tree works well as a stand-alone tree or makes a dramatic display when planted in groups.  If you are looking for an excellent flowering tree that is resistant to most disease, then you should consider the Red Jewel Crabapple.
