Crabapples are among the most beautiful of all the ornamental trees, and are a popular choice since they're exceptionally hardy and easily cultivated. They are a source of bright spring blossoms, a wonderful fragrance, and summer crabapples, which are eaten by the Park's wildlife. These trees are one of the most famous features of the Conservatory Garden. You can spot them in the North Garden, but the main showing of crabapples is in the two allées that border the Central Garden.
