In addition to the eye-catching buds and flowers, their foliage, and fruit make them attractive plants almost year-round. Crab apple fruits are beloved by birds and small mammals. They are also edible to humans.
Hundredfold Note: Crab apples vs. Callery pears
Apples and pears belong to the same family of Rosaceae. The area where I work is infested with Callery pears (aka, Bradford pears). These invasive trees even help themselves along the highway, forming ugly canopies that block everything underneath. Furthermore, their offensive smell keeps many away. If you have a Callery pear in your place, yesterday would have been a good day to cut it down.
Luckily, this area has a few crab apples to decorate itself. Oppressive to the Callery pears, crab apples do nothing but good. The bloom is nice and the apples are scented. They also host an army of beneficial insects and birds. Replace the invasive pears with crab apples would be the right thing to do, for the outlook of your landscape and your health.
