‘Profusion’ is a unique beauty among the crabapples. It has dark red buds that pop open to reveal a remarkable dark pink, purplish bloom. These blooms completely cover the tree in spring and they are highlighted by the backdrop of purple, green leaves that unfold at the same time. In summer it will produce the small fruit that crabapples are known for and if you are looking for a crabapple but shy away because of the possible mess from the fruit you should consider this variety. Not only does the fruit have a vivid maroon color they also stay on the tree into the winter. Giving it a long lasting beauty as the seasons change. With the crabapples staying the tree longer it provides food for birds and other wildlife into the winter and this provides less mess for you. The Profusion crabapple also has a more open spread with a good round form and is good for any landscape purpose though you mostly see them as specimen trees since they have a beauty that can stand alone.
