INTRODUCTION: There are hundreds of named cultivars - 800 by one estimate. Some of them are near hopelessly confused in the trade with multiple clones and equally bad grafting styles. We have endeavored with the help of some experts, leading literature, and recently published evaluations to narrow down the list.

As ever, the New Ornamentals Society will be updating things as often as breakthroughs and new research merits. If you have a truly superior, well-tested, and documented cultivar to add here please write us with as much scientific evidence and descriptive detail as can be provided. If all you know is "pretty pink buds and lots of red fruit" you're out of consideration.

Your society editors felt that a purely alphabetical order would not be as helpful as groupings for major traits like double flowers, habit, flower color, and fruit color. Some cultivars fit in more than one group and are assigned more than once if all categories in which they excel.  We've included some oddities with cherry-like bark, spicy fragrance, yellow bark, oddly colored fruit, lobed or cut leaves, and unusually shaped petals that will add interest to any arboretum.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to consult your local arboretum or extension service before planting crabapples in any quanity or in important, visible locations. Some publish good lists of the modern cultivars. They can assist us to determine which diseases are severe in specific area and which cultivars have performed the best. Your local garden, sad to say, probably only sells what is cheap or hyped to them without regard to our best interests. Many look you straight in the eye, lying or ignorant, and tell you some old cultivar does very well. They've never grown it and perhaps never seen it outside the sales yard. "Pretty pink" flowers can give way to a defoliated or dead tree by mid-summer. More than one landscape architect has ruined their rep (and been sued) for mistakes with the sometimes aptly named genus Malus. Some seem to go with the fanciest, fun-sounding trademark name or what is patented for some unknown reason to real horticulturists. If you have very profesional, worldclass garden center that actually reads current literature and consults with unbiased evaluators seek them out.

Also consider our list of doubles, some of which set little or no fruit. These are imporant for near walkways where abundant-fruitng clones can get messy and even very dangerous after a rain. There's nothing like slippery, molding, rotting fruit outside your client's lawfirm or a busy shopping entrance. Be careful and enjoy this amazing but troubled group of trees.

If you want more reading there is no better book than Fiala's Flowering Crabapples. It can be hard to find (2003) but most internet booksellers have a few around or will get you a decent used copy. I got a $25 copy of this sometimes $50 book with two bruised corners - which I would have inflicted in a week's time anyhow. Dirr's 1998 Manual has good comments but is already outdated and missing some of the good new stuff. Jacobson's underused North American Landscape Trees is also recommended for good discussions on history, nomenclature, and ornamental merit. Also consult the wholesale nursery websites. Run a google.com search for Malus plus any cultivar name (no quotation marks) and many interesting references will come up - many with frank and valid opinions of the cultivars.
