This just maybe my all time favorite tree… at last this week! (giggle)  We are fortunate to have many different ornamental and fruit trees that are blooming this time of year in our home garden.  I am excited to share with you this gorgeous tree in the video below.

About the Candymint Crabapple Tree

The common name is ‘Sargent Crabapple’ and rated for hardiness zone 4-8.  The candymint crabapple tree reaches up to 10 feet tall and 15 feet wide and makes the perfect addition to any small garden.   Plant in full sun and the soil conditions do not have to be the best in fact it is recommended to plant in a well drained looming soil. The growth habit of this small tree adds interest to the landscape year-round.

What I love most about the small candymint crabapple tree (besides its name) is it’s shape.  This beauty also attracts many pollinators including bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

The blooms on the candymint crabapple have a light floral scent.  Trim the branches to use in floral arrangements during the spring season.

  1. How do I get my Candy Mint Crabapple tree to grow on top? It’s pretty well rounded but the top right looks like Japanese beetle’s got to it and it looks sad! Lots of little crabapples though. Thank you!!

    1. This variety grows to be about 10 feet tall so once it hits that height you will most likely get more wider branches. I have not seen any Japanese beetles on my 2 trees. I think that beetle is too busy attacking some of my red raspberry shrubs! The little berries are a treat for the birds and other wildlife on this variety. Thanks for commenting!
