Malus toringo: how often blooms?

Posted by cpacker none (My Page) on

During the course of a foliage time-lapse photo project over the last five years (cpacker.org/trees) I noticed a group of trees that are identified by tags on them as Malus toringo. But two of the four have bloomed only every other year. Is it possible for the same species to vary that much in behavior?

RE: Malus toringo: how often blooms?

Not exactly the most appropriate forum for this question but yes, it is quite possible for the same species to vary somewhat in behavior. FWIW, biennial flowering is extremely common in flowering crabs (and some apple cultivars) so I would hardly consider this to be a very significant distinction. The alternate year flowering is not necessarily a given or guaranteed........sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.
