Malus ioensis (Prairie Crab Apple) is fantastic in bloom with magenta flower buds open to pink-white flowers. The fruit is very popular with a myriad of wildlife. This shrub or understory tree would have been found in open woodlands, woodland edges, thickets, and prairies, but it has largely decreased in populations with habitat loss.  Unfortunately, prairie crabapple is susceptible to many foliar diseases and can tend to lose its leaves early in the growing season.
