A Guide to Ornamental Fruit Trees

Ornamental Crabapple  (Malus x)

“The jewels of the landscape” offer four seasons of outstanding visual impact with a spectacular show of magnificent fragrant blooms that appear in mid-spring.  Though ornamental fruit trees often bear edible fruit, they are most often used for statement pieces making them a staple in landscape gardening.

Ornamental Cherry  (Prunus serrulata)

Flowering Cherry trees, though closely related to orchard cherry trees, are not grown for their fruit but for their exceptional springtime floral displays.  They are also notable for their wonderful fall colour of burnished shades of bronze & gold.  The fruit, too tart for human consumption, attracts a variety of birds.
