‘Indian Summer’ is a crabapple that typically matures to 15-20’ tall. It is noted for its broad-rounded shape, deep rose-red flowers, red fruit, fall color and good disease resistance. Oval leaves (to 3” long) emerge purplish when young, turn medium green for the remainder of the growing season and display good orange-red fall color.
Crimson buds open in spring to rose-red flowers. Flowers are followed by bright red crabapples (to 3/4” diameter) that mature in fall and persist into winter. Birds are attracted to the fruit.
