|The Echtermeyer Weeping Crabapple, 'Malus Echtermeyer', is an attractive, small, weeping ornamental tree. The weeping side limbs produce large purplish-red flowers. New foliage has a purplish tinge and turns to bronze-green as the leaves mature. |
The Echtermeyer produces 1�? purplish-red fruit. The trunk requires staking for the first few years. The weeping form can be easily maintained at any size because it grows in a succession of leaders. It performs best in well drained soil in full sun.
