'Jane' is part of the Little Girl Series. Plants in this series flower about 2-4 weeks later than M. stellata and M. × soulangiana, thus reducing the risk of damage to flowers from late spring frosts. 'Jane' is primarily noted for its compact, upright habit, large reddish-purple flowers with white interiors and late bloom (mid-April to early May). It is a slow-growing, multi-stemmed, small, deciduous tree that typically rises over time to 20-25' tall with a spread to 15-20' wide. The cup-shaped flowers (to 4" diameter) are reddish-purple with white interiors. Flowers bloom shortly before the foliage begins to appear. Flowers may sporadically repeat bloom in mid-summer. Ovate leaves (to 6" long) emerge with copper-red tints in spring, turn dark green by late spring and finally acquire yellow to bronze-copper tones in fall.

|Malus 'Adirondack' Crabapple
Botanical Name: Malus 'Adirondack'
(NA 54943; PI 499828)
Hardiness: U.S.D.A. Zone 4 - 8
Five hundred open-pollinated seedlings of Malus halliana were artificially inoculated with fire blight under control conditions. Of the sixty surviving seedlings, several showed field resistance to scab, cedar-apple rust, and powdery mildew when exposed to natural inoculum from heavily infected, susceptible plants during eleven years of field trial. 'Adirondack' was selected from this seedling population in 1974 by Donald R. Egolf and released in 1987.
'Adirondack' exhibits a combination of many desirable traits that make it a near-perfect crabapple. The narrow obovate, upright-branched growth habit combines with an annual bloom cycle, abundant, small, persistent fruit, slow to moderate growth rate, and multiple disease tolerance that is rare in crabapple. Highly rated for both aesthetics and disease resistance by the International Ornamental Crabapple Society.
Height and Width: 18 feet tall and 16 feet crown width at 20 years.
Narrow obovate, upright-branched small tree. Maintains upright form with age.
Leathery dark green leaves. The foliage is highly tolerant to cedar apple rust, apple scab, and powdery mildew.
Annual flowering. Dark carmine buds mature to a lighter red and open to white, waxy, heavy-textured, wide-spreading flowers with traces of red; slightly fragrant.
A pome. Abundant, bright orange-red, hard, small (1/2-inch) fruit persist until early winter. Relished by birds after softened by freezing.
Adaptable to diverse soil, moisture, and climatic conditions. Requires virtually no pruning to maintain its shape nor chemical controls for the common crabapple diseases.
Most commercial propagation is by budding or grafting onto compatible rootstocks. Roots easily from softwood cuttings in late spring, under mist, 3000 ppm IBA, in 4 weeks.
Effective for foundation plantings of buildings or formal gardens; as a specimen for space-limited situations; a strong focal accent in the shrub border or residential garden; park and recreational area screen; roadside or street tree where shade is not important.|
Malus x adstringens 'Durleo' PP20,167
Gladiator™ is an excellent ornamental tree with a profusion of bright pink flowers followed by small reddish-purple fruit on a stately, upright crown.

Show Time Flowering Crab will grow to be about 25 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 20 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 3 feet from the ground and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more. Heavy blooming, with large bright fuchsia-pink flowers that are striking in springtime. Dark green foliage has a red overlay. This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.

Swamp White Oak
Quercus bicolor, commonly called Swamp White Oak, is a medium sized, deciduous tree with a broad, rounded crown and a short trunk which typically grows at a moderate rate to a height of 50-60' (sometimes larger). Leaves are dark, shiny green above and silvery white beneath, with 5-10 rounded lobes or blunt teeth along the margins. Fall color is yellow, but sometimes reddish purple. Insignificant flowers in separate male and female catkins in spring. Fruits are acorns which mature in early fall. Indigenous to north, central, and eastern Missouri in moist to swampy locations in bottomlands and lowlands, such as along streams and lakes, valleys, floodplains and at the edge of swamps. Also has surprisingly good drought resistance.
