Description: The Pacific Crabapple, also known as the Oregon Crabapple is a smaller sized tree, reaching heights of only 35-40 feet when mature. It is native to the West Coast of North America, where it can be found from Alaska, British Columbia, Washington State, Oregon and Northern California. The pacific crabapple tree develops into an irregular shaped design with multiple stems that develop thorny shoots that bear small flowers ranging in color from white to pink in the spring months. The flowers yield small edible tart apples, yellow to reddish in color, which usually turn brown shortly after the first frosts of the year. In the wild, the species is commonly found in moist areas, such as wetlands, swamps, banks of rivers, streams and creeks and moist fields.


Site Conditions: The Pacific Crabapple is adaptable to a range of soil types, but it prefers moist well-drained soil and is tolerant to wet soil conditions. It prefers full sun exposure but is tolerant to partial shade conditions.
