Malus 'Parrsi'  Pink Princess™ Crabapple [2]
‘Pink Princess™ Crabapple is a low, spreading crabapple tree that typically matures to 10’ tall and 15' wide. Pale-rose blossoms are followed by small, dark red crabapples that mature in fall and provide showy winter interest. Birds are attracted to the fruit. Oval green leaves are tinged with maroon. Fall color is often quite attractive.

Pink Princess is susceptible to all of the crabapples' 'Big Four:' fire blight, powdery mildew, apple scab and cedar-rust [3].
