Crabapples are self-fertile, which means they depend on insects such as bees to transfer pollen between flowers on the same tree, though they do not require another tree of the same kind to produce crabapples.
Did you know that crabapples will also pollinate apple trees? However, because bees tend to stay within the same flower color when foraging apple blossoms, try and match the flower color of the crabapple to the apple variety.

The benefits of bare-root trees
Our trees are delivered with natural bare roots which have been dipped in hydrating gel prior to shipment to keep the roots moist and healthy. As their abundant, fibrous roots aren't confined by a container, bare-root trees get off to a more vigorous start compared to containerized roots which typically need more time to adjust to transplanting. Bare-root trees typically surpass the size of larger containerized trees in only a few years.
