The crabapple plot, called Crablandia in Secrest Arboretum, is located in Wooster, Ohio and will be in full bloom and full splendor, in the next couple of days.  With the onset of multiple periods of unseasonably warm weather, the typical bloom emergence time is about 2 weeks ahead of schedule.  The incredible display of crabapple flowers has traditionally been one of the most popular times to stroll through the Arboretum and experience the amazing fragrance, accompanied by marvelous views of flower petals.

If you want to experience this floral fantasy for yourself, then the time to go and see Secrest Arboretum is the next couple of days.  This will allow you to see the greatest number of crabapple trees at their peak of bloom and colors.  With the combination of the mild autumn and very mellow winter, the trees are their fullest, both with the overall number of trees flowering and individually bloom-wise, that they have been in quite few years.  You really don’t want to miss out on not seeing Crablandia in color!
