Is it a maple or a sycamore? Or both? Part of me doesn’t care–it’s got multi-season appeal. See for yourself!

Starlite Crabapple

There is a special place in my heart for all trees pyramidal. I’m making room for Starlite. Plus! High-five to tiny, red, fruit that stays on the branches, at least until the birds come ’round.

Quick Points:
-Botanical Name: Malus x ‘Jeflite’
-Upright branching, white spring flowers, glossy, disease-resistant foliage
-Tiny red fruit
-Comparable to ‘Spring Snow’ only better
