Across campus our collection of Crabapples {Malus sp.} are all approaching full bloom perfectly timed to celebrate Saturday’s commencement. In Arold Field is a group of four ‘Royalty’ Crabapples {Malus ‘Royalty} with deep red flowers above the purple foliage. This is an open pollinated Rosybloom seedling. On High St. above Smith Hall is a ‘Tina’ Crabapple {Malus sargentii ‘Tina’} with red buds that have opened to white flowers. This species is the smallest of Crabapples and is an excellent choice for smaller landscapes. Along Rt. 175 A as well as near the Athletic Center are several Siberian Crabapples {Malus baccata} that are our largest Crabapple and are covered in white flowers. This is one of the hardiest Crabapples and most prolific species with over 150 named varieties. At the top of the stairs leading from Lamson Library to Pemi Hall is a ‘Red Jade’ Crabapple {Malus ‘Red Jade’} that was the first Crabapple with a weepng form. It has white flowers and red fruit. The tree below this is a ‘Winter Gold’ Crabapple {Malus ‘Winter Gold’} that has carmine buds that open to white flowers, this year this is one of the heaviest bloomers on campus. Its lemon yellow fruit is outstanding and is the primary reason we have several of these on campus.
