When attending the Lilac Festival, there was an amazing tree in bloom. It was Malus 'Brandywine'. The likes of which I've never seen. It was covered in blooms. The semi-double blooms looked like roses which of course makes sense since they are very distant cousins.
I like crabapple trees in the spring. They go well with lilacs. This is the first time though that I saw one and had to investigate just what tree it was. It is simply lovely!

I almost forgot to mention the blooms smell good! The scent is like a high quality floral soap if that makes any sense, lol.
