Profusion Flowering Crabapple - Help!
I was interested in getting a Profusion Flowering Crab. Malus x Profusion. Can anyone give some input (I live in zone 6):
1) The tag states size is 12-15' Tall by 8-10' Wide. Is this the correct size? I read on the internet that the width can really be 15-20' wide.
2) Based on the info above, how big do the roots get? Do these trees have soft roots? I want to plant near a sidewalk (did have a wimpy Bradford Pear that fell down in windstorm).
3) If the birds don't get all the fruits, do they fall off the tree? And make a mess on the ground?
Thanks for your help! Chris
