Malus sargentii, commonly known as Sargent's crabapple, is a species of flowering tree in the rose family (Rosaceae) native to Japan. It is named after Charles Sprague Sargent, an influential American horticulturist.

Sargent's crabapple is a small, deciduous tree that typically grows to a height of 3 to 8 meters (10 to 26 feet) with a rounded crown. It is valued for its ornamental qualities, including its showy spring blossoms, which can range in color from white to pink, and its small, decorative fruits, which are usually red or yellow and persist into winter, providing interest and food for birds.

This species is popular in landscaping and is often used in gardens, parks, and urban areas for its attractive appearance and ability to attract pollinators. It is relatively low-maintenance and tolerant of various soil conditions, although it prefers well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. Sargent's crabapple is also sometimes used as a rootstock for grafting other apple varieties. Hardy in zones 4-8.


Growing Instructions for Sargent’s Crabapple


The seeds have a period of dormancy. They can be planted outdoors in the fall or winter for spring germination or they can be cold stratified to simulate winter conditions and to break their dormancy at any time of the year. 1. Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours. 2. Put the seeds in a ziplock bag. 3. Put the bag in the refrigerator and leave it there for 4 months. 4. The seeds like moist, well-drained soil. Use a sterile seed starter mix, if available. It prevents soil fungi from damaging the seeds and the seedlings. If not available, then make a mixture of half potting soil and half sand, perlite or vermiculite. 5. Put the soil in a pot. 6. Sow the seeds on the soil. 7. Cover the seeds with a layer of soil. 8. Water the soil so that it is moist but not wet. The seeds should start to germinate in 1 to 2 weeks. 9. When the seedlings are 1-2 years old, they can be transplanted.
