Latest Work – “Prairifire Reds”

http://washingtonstreetpub.com/wp-content/themes/mycuisine/js/custom.js “Prairifire Reds” – Branch of Prairifire Flowering Crabapple Tree

It was the dark red crabapples (pomes) that caught my attention one sunny late fall day while walking at the The Riverwood Conservancy in Mississauga.  And it was not until this past summer that I was able to identify the type of crabapple tree … a Prairifire Flowering Crabapple (Malus ‘Prairifire’).  The tree is a disease-resistant cultivar developed by Dr. Daniel Dayton, University of Illinois in 1982.  He misspelled the name intentionally.  Do you know that crabapple trees are members of the rose family, Rosaceae?  People are attracted to the Prairifire crabapple by its deep pink-red flowers, its ever-changing leaf colour … maroon to dark green/purplish-red veins to bronze … and its reddish-grey bark.  I was hoping to obtain another small specimen for my painting, but sadly on my visit the tree appeared stressed with few leaves and fruit.   Enjoy!
