Malus x 'Perfect Purple' is a hybrid ornamental crabapple cultivar noted for its upright growth habit, pink flowers, and striking purple foliage that turn to bright red in the fall.

Growing to 20-25' tall and 15-20' wide, 'Perfect Purple' lands squarely in the ornamental category; although related to domesticated apples, crabapples are small, sour, and bitter compared to their cultivated relatives. However, when bright pink spring blooms begin to blossom on top of soft purple foliage, 'Perfect Purple' truly fits its name, and attracts a variety of pollinators and wildlife to boot.

Malus x 'Perfect Purple' is not at all fussy, and was bred for increased cold hardiness and environmental tolerance. When given full sun, and moist, well-drained soil, 'Perfect Purple' becomes the perfect specimen or border tree, and adds contrast to any majority green landscape.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
