Touted as a crabapple for all seasons, Guinevere® blooms mid-spring with dark pink buds that open to pale pink, almost white blossoms. Dark green foliage turns shades of orange come fall.

This tidy tree stays smaller, and is almost reminiscent of a Japanese maple in the garden. It is suitable for small spaces, according to the “UpShoot” online newsletter.  This comely newcomer is part of the Round Table Series of dwarf flowering crabapples from Lake Country Nurseries (lakecountrynurseries.com). Flowers are fragrant, tree is disease resistant and cold hardy to Zone 4. Height is six to eight feet with a 12 to 15-foot spread and rounded shape.
