The Sargent crabapple (Malus sargentii) belongs to Rosaceae (the Rose family). It is a small deciduous tree that is native to Hokkaido in Japan. The species was formerly considered a variety of the "Zumi" (Malus toringo). This tree grows about 2 m tall and spreads to 4.5 m wide. The leaves are ovate, lobed, dark green, and turn yellow in fall. The flowers are fragrant, white and bloom in April. The fruits are red crabapples, 6-7 mm in diameter, and mature in the fall. The pea-sized fruits are sweet-flavored like rose hips, but are not usually used in cooking. They are long-lasting and attractive to birds, however. This tree is commonly used as an ornamental shrub.
