In midspring the profuse pink flower buds open into very fragrant, white, five-petaled flowers. Leaves are bright green.

The Siberian Crab Apple is very cold hardy and can be used in landscape as a border tree or street tree. It is susceptible to scab and sometimes fire blight. Originally from northeastern Asia.

Should not be planted near juniper, cedar, or cotoneaster.
