This dwarf crabapple is perhaps best when planted in groups in borders, near fences or as a wind screen or informal hedge. Also effective as a small specimen.
Generally excellent disease resistance to the main diseases of crabapples: apple scab, fire blight, rusts, leaf spot and powdery mildew. Potential insect pests are of lesser concern and include tent caterpillars, aphids, Japanese beetles, borers, spider mites and scale.
