Crabapple - Sugar Tyme

Malus 'Sugar Tyme'
USDA Hardiness Zones: 4-8

Often referred to as a crabapple for all seasons, the Sugar Tyme cultivar is a beautiful yet compact tree that makes a striking addition to your garden or landscaping. Sugar Tyme crabapple is an upright, oval, deciduous tree with year-round interest. Opening from pale pink buds, masses of pure white flowers appear in mid-spring. Draped in clusters along the branches, they are truly a sight to behold. The showy blossoms are followed by abundant, radiant red fruits, 1/2 in. (1.2 cm), that remain on the tree all year (unless the birds eat them). Equally attractive is the crisp foliage of glossy, rich green ovate leaves, which becomes bronze-yellow in the fall. A beautiful flowering crabapple tree that is disease resistant and looks spectacular all year long. The Sugar Tyme has a medium growth rate and reaches a mature height of about 14ft. to 20 ft. It is hardy to minus 15° (USDA Hardiness Zones 4-8). It grows in moist, well-drained, acidic soil, in full sun locations for best flowering. They are not recommended for sandy soil due to their inability to tolerate drought, but any other soil is suitable, including clay. The tree is shipped in a #5 pot with an average tree height between 2 ft. to 3 ft.

How to Plant
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.
