A profusion of showy pink flowers in spring and crimson fruit in fall, upright habit of growth; makes an incredible accent for the smaller home landscape; produces purple foliage and needs full sun and well-drained soil. Velvet Pillar Flowering Crab features showy clusters of fragrant pink flowers along the branches in mid spring, which emerge from distinctive red flower buds before the leaves. It has attractive deep purple foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves are highly ornamental and turn an outstanding burgundy in the fall. The fruits are showy crimson pomes carried in abundance from early to late fall.
