Project Description

Ivory Spear™ Crabapple

Malus ‘JFS KW214MX’

Selected by Keith Warren from the ornamental crabapple breeding program of J. Frank Schmidt & Son Co., and introduced by J. Frank Schmidt & Son Co.

Deep pink buds open to white flowers on this densely upright, narrowly columnar crabapple. Exceptionally disease-resistant foliage stays clean and disease free throughout the growing season,
forming a uniform column of dark green foliage in the landscape. Ivory Spear™ is ideal for space challenged, compact landscapes including rooftop gardens, courtyards and containers. Its bright cherry red fruits contrast well with the dark green leaves. They persist well into late autumn, when a touch of yellow fall color adds seasonal interest. Ivory Spear™ is more columnar than any other white-flowering ornamental crabapple in the marketplace. Its excellent foliage quality and overall disease resistance are unusual for a crabapple. Hardy to Zone 4.

Available as bare root (5 foot to 1¼ inch caliper branched) and #5 containers (5 foot) from J. Frank Schmidt & Son Co. (Booth #19026).
