Adirondack is a very compact crabapple with symmetrical crown and profusion of flowers. They open from rich pink, pearl-shaped buds which remain closed for 2-3 weeks making their pink pearl show before they open into snow white, fragrant flowers in mid May. They are soon followed by miniature apples which mature rich scarlet red in early autumn. Leaves are deciduous, small, elliptic, dark green, and glossy.

The habit of Adirondack crabapple is quite formal with narrowly vase-shaped canopy and dense branching without pruning. Should you need to prune it anyway, do so in late winter when you will remove branches with flower buds, or in late spring after flowering (recommended).

Apple and crabapple trees will grow in most soils but do best in well-drained but evenly moist, fertile, preferably acid soil for best autumn colours in case of varieties which do offer autumn colour. When planting it, make sure the root-ball is well soaked with water. Fully hardy to about -34°C (USDA zone 4).
