Distinct from other crabapple trees, the Summer Wonder Crabapple will bring color to your yard in the summer as well as the spring; in addition to the crabapple's pink-purple spring blooms, the tree boasts of red foliage in the summer. With its beautiful flowers and rich foliage, the Summer Wonder will serve as an attractive specimen tree in your yard. Like other crabapples, Summer Wonder has a medium growth rate and reaches a mature height of about 20-25 feet. It is hardy to -15 degrees (Zones 4-8) and is self-pollinating so it does not need to be planted with other trees. USDA ZONES: Zone 4, Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8.

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

Crabapple trees need ample sun and water to grow. They take about a year to establish, and during that time need regular watering. Water for 10 minutes once a week during the hot days of summer and spring, and then decrease that to once a month in fall and winter. Once crabapples are established they need little additional watering. Prune in the spring after the crabapple has stopped blooming.
