Gladiator Crabapple

  • Zone: 2
  • Size: 20' High, 9' Wide
  • Foliage: Pink flowers with bronze purple foliage turning to purple in the fall

Gladiator is an excellent ornamental tree with a profusion of bright pink flowers followed by small reddish-purple fruit on a stately, upright crown. Glossy bronze-purple leaves are darker and glossier than Purple Prince, remain lush all season long and are highly disease resistant. Gladiator is an ideal ornamental tree for space-challenged sites including under power lines, as a small boulevard tree or planted in a row for a screen. This is an open pollinated selection of 'Royalty'. Selected by Rick Durand, from Portage la Prairie MB, CA. (®CA)
