Plant Pic of the Day: Malus
Technically this photo is from three days ago but whatever. The crabapple allees (Malus floribunda) are in bloom at the Conservatory Garden at the north end of Central Park on the east side at 105th and 5th Avenue. For you horticulturists and arborists out there you know this means that they are blooming a good two to three weeks ahead of schedule due to the abnormally warmer temps we have been having. Even the lilacs have started to open, a number of weeks early themselves, like many of the other spring blooming trees and shrubs. So the point? Don't delay people, get out there and see all this amazingness while you can!
