Flowering Crab Apple Are popular trees closely related to apples, but with smaller edible fruit. They may also differ in leaf color, growth habit, flowering time or flower color. Are fairly drought tolerant. Also hey can be low maintenance and are versatile landscape plants, often with more than one season of interest. Are generally well adapted to Colorado soils and climate, but varieties or cultivars should be carefully selected for disease resistance and for higher elevations. Crabapple blossoms in April to May, depending on variety and elevation. Also some crabapple varieties bloom relatively early, others bloom mid-season and some bloom towards the end of crabapple season.
Bayberry Bayberry, also known as wax myrtle, waxberry, or candelberry, is both a shrub and a tree. All members of the bayberry family are classified botanically as Myricaceae, and many varieties are found all over the world map. Myrica pensylvanica is a mainly deciduous shrub. It may hang on to some of its leaves during the winter, but in that case they will probably look ratty. While bayberry shrubs are delightful during the summer and autumn, they may be most valued for the novelty their gray berries afford to the winter.
