Summary and Origin Edit

The Sweet Crabapple (Malus coronaria), also known by the name garland crab, is a North American species of Malus (crabapple). It grows primarily in the Great Lakes Region and in the Ohio Valley, with outlying populations as far away as Alabama, eastern Kansas, Long Island, and Ontario.

Appearance Edit

The sweet crabapple looks like a flat version of the apple.

Flowering Time Edit

The plant's flowering time is about two weeks later than that of the domestic apple, and its fragrant fruit clings to the branches on clustered stems long after the leaves have fallen.
