SPRING SNOW CRABAPPLE TREE and FORSYTHIA
As you drive around the Washington Metro Area; Maryland and Virginia, you are delighted with the number of trees that are in bloom now. Today, I am showcasing the Crabapple Tree. Spring is the best time to enjoy this tree. I mixed some yellow Forsythia for fun, however, forsythia is not a tree, is a shrub, so I’ll focus on the Crabapple today.
Ironically, the name doesn’t necessary do what other Crabapples trees do. This tree, unlike most Crabapple trees does not bear fruit, therefore, it is entirely fruitless.
Yeah, I know, no fruits to enjoy; however, believe it or not, there is an advantage to that. The other Crabapple trees produce an abundance of fruits that if you don’t keep up with the production, the squirrels, birds and the such will ruin the fruits and you will end up with a huge mess of rotten wasted fruits in the ground and the tree.
So, for now, let’s enjoy this seasons’ flowering Crabapple tree, since like most other trees, is going to be short and by the time that you blink, all the flowers will be gone.
