Show Time™ crabapple, with its fluorescent, fuchsia-red flowers, is a striking newcomer taking center stage in the ornamental tree market.
All it took was one look at Show Time by west coast liner growers and this stunner was quickly incorporated into production plans.
Jim Chatfield, The Ohio State University Extension Team and past-president of the International Ornamental Crabapple Society says, “Show Time is the perfect replacement for Prairiefire.”
At Willoway Nurseries CENTS exhibit, I found a triple-double espalier. Two different crabapples on three tiers create one unique tree! Hans Nelson & Sons in Boring, Oregon grafted an alternating combination of Show Time™ and Sugar Tyme® varieties.
Espaliers are a different way to showcase flowering trees. When planted against a building, they act as natural air conditioners.
