Transition Thursday - Week 1 - Malus x 'Prairifire'

Malus x ‘Prairifire’ – Prairifire Crabapple This tree has a sad beginning. All the rain this year really caused a horrible outbreak of apple scab (a fungus) and caused all the leaves to drop super early. It’ll be beautiful in Spring though. Sit tight.



  1. I love this idea!!

  2. I miss Urbana. I know where ALL of those trees are.

    Aw, nostalgia.
