Siberian Crabapple Blossoms ~ Tree Sapling For Unique Mother's Day Gift!


My Siberian crabapple tree has bloomed. The Siberian crabapple tree is so gorgeous with sweet fragrant white flowers, adding a special beauty to our yard!


The lovely buds are hot pink, and bloom fully to a beautiful white five petal flower with yellow pollen centers. The photo above reminds me of a Hawaiian Lei.



The white flowers add a special contrast to any backround, as seen above with the blue sky backround.

Our crabapple tree was a gift, and planted when we were first married 19 years ago. The tree planted as part of a tree conservation campaign taking place in Pennsylvania. If you’re looking for a gorgeous low maintenance tree, the crabapple will bring you many years of stunning Spring blooms.

We've lost many forest and city trees in our Pennsylvania region over the years. The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and and the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources join in efforts to restore millions of lost tree coverage in our Pennsylvania region. Tree Vitalize endorsed by Governor Ed Rendell in 2004, is planning to plant 1 million trees in the next 5 years, which by the way will not replace all the lost trees to our area! Present count of Tree Vitalize planted trees 93, 885!

We’ve lost millions of trees due to modernization and mother nature, and wild fires, all across the USA. Plant A Tree USA is another dedicated organization reforesting lands throughout the USA. You can even donate land from your estate to be reforested!

Trees look beautiful in many areas, trees help keep our air clean, shade buildings and pavement, and controls storm waters on our grounds. Arbor Day has already passed in the U.S., but now is still an excellent time to plant a tree in your yard, along sidewalks, or on large property areas.

AmericanForest.org is another interesting site offering a huge amount of tree replanting information, including buying a tree for a Mother’s Day gift. What a unique idea, donate to plant a tree in your mother’s honor, which benefit different tree projects of your choice. Check it out! Or simply go to your local nursery, and pick out a couple tree saplings for your mom as a Mother’s Day gift.

Keep our planet beautiful, plant a tree today. Check your area for planting schedules, we just may help fill the deficit while beautifying our horizons for a future greener earth! A valuable gift to cherish which keeps on giving for many generations to come!

Jo, I have a crabapple tree that looks very similar, but have no idea if it is Siberian (beautiful when it blooms nonetheless)

Hi jo,

Very beautiful tree!!! It also looks like sakura tree ;)

Anyway, how large your yard is!!!
It is like a huge park. How beautiful.

I haven't decided what to give to my mom for mother's day... Last time I ordered some flowers online, but they weren't fresh, so this time I'm still thinking what to give... nursery plant is a good idea!!!

Dan, did you look up the Siberian Crabapple link? Aren't they just gorgeous! The blossoms are already falling off!

Hi Ochi,

Do you have trees around where you live? We do have a lot of yard space. The reason I decided to stack the wood, I hate stuff just thrown in a pile. Since we have so much wood, I don't want to take away from my beautiful yard!

Yes a nursery plant is a wonderful idea, even one your mom can keep inside is nice!

We have an apple tree also. I don't know if it's Siberian or not. It doesn't blossom much anymore, but for years it was the highlight of my spring. There is something so graceful and elegant about its shape and display.

Hi Jo,

Yes they are beautiful, mine is already losing it's blossoms! At least I took some really great photos!

Hi jo,

Luckily, we do have some trees around our home, but if you walk toward the station, there aren't many...

Of course, no yard space!!! I know there are many in other prefectures. I think I need to check it out in Yamagata, where I'm going next week ;) I heard water there is really clean!

Hi Ochi,

I remember mom talking about the cheery blossoms, but not about other trees. She did mention she lived in a countrylike setting! I'm glad you've trees around you, they are so magnificent! You'll have to take photos at Yamagata! :)
