Dolgo Crab Apple
Red Rugosa Rose

Dolgo Crab Apple is one of the hardiest species of crab apple.

This fruit tree accent tree combination is commonly used in urban landscapes.

Dolgo Crab Apple produces clusters of white flowers before its deep green foliage emerges. Its small apple-like fruit is great for jams and jellies.

Red Rugosa Rose is well-known for its incredible cold hardiness and disease resistance. This variety has beautiful crimson red flowers followed by scarlet rose hips in autumn. Try using the rose hips to make syrups or add flavor to existing fruit dishes and drinks.

Due to their overly thorny stems, Red Rugosa Rose is perfect for creating an impenetrable, deer resistant hedge. We recommend applying mulch during the summer months to retain moisture, cool the roots, and prevent weeds.

Note: This variety is from a seed source, not cuttings. Although somewhat true to seed and color expect some variability.
