This selection of ‘Sargentii’ reaches only 7′ tall and has a low, spreading habit making it look almost pendulous. Purplish buds open in early May to reveal 1″ rose-pink flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Small, deep red, marble sized crabapples mature in the fall and persist through winter and birds love to feed on them. Three inch long leaves emerge purplish red in spring providing an outstanding backdrop for the profuse bloom. Foliage color transitions to dark green in the summer and then, as cooler weather approaches, they turn a pleasing yellow. ‘Pink Princess’ is low maintenance and loves full sun and moist, well-drained soils.
