Malus x purpurea - purple leaf Crabapple

Post  Randy_Davis on Mon Mar 30, 2015 2:44 pm

Just thought I'd post a pic of a Crabapple that looks like a Crabapple.  It will go into a light colored Celadon green round container once I get it made, hopefully next spring. All comments are welcome.

Randy, thanks for posting.

Must be nice to make your own pots, sure beats beating the bushes to find something that might work.....

You might consider shortening the width of the tree's foliage. To my eye it's too wide for the height.Thinking
if you do will help you when it comes to making your new pot's diameter. Keep the new pot's depth more shallow then deep
as I believe that will show the tree off better.

Yumpin' Yimminy Randy!!! Love seeing all those flowers!! Someone has been listening to what their tree has been sayin'. And a "hug" once in awhile I bet. Thanks for sharing.

i agree with both randy (looks like a crabapple) !!!
but also with dick... could be a bit more compacted,
but either way, stunning and looks like spring is spranging !

Not everything has to look ancient, and this looks chock full of youthful energy. Like it a lot.
