Gladiator™ Crabapple is unlike any crabapple on the market today—most are as wide as they are tall, but Gladiator™ with its strong columnar habit matures out at 20′ tall and only 9′ wide! It is perfect for space-challenged sites such as under power lines or small boulevard strips. In spring expect a profusion of bright pink flowers followed by tiny reddish purple fruit in late summer.
