Purple Prince Crabapple

Malus 'Purple Prince'


Plant Description

This Father Fiala selection has outstanding rose-red blossoms and maroon fruits. The purple-bronze foliage and bright flowers rival ‘Liset’ but ‘Purple Prince’ does not suffer from stem splitting and is faster growing. Because it matures quickly as a young tree this is one of the best purple-leaf crabs for growers. Excellent resistance to scab, fireblight and cedar-apple rust.
