Malus rosseau


Secrest Arboretum in Wooster Ohio has the largest collection of Ornamental Crabapples in the world.

This one: Malus rosseau is one of my favorites.

Planted in 1954 the color on this tree is just outstanding, and the fragrance will just about knock you over. Truly a gorgeous tree.

Secrest is a great place, for research, study, and the ultimate form of how trees and shrubs reach their ultimate sizes and shapes. After a visit here it is easy to see why I shake my head so often at how close plant material is shoved up next to a house.

Secrest is definitely worth the visit. Posted by Hello
