Mother crabapple Tree has dark red leaves & suckers green leaves?
I would think this was a graphed tree but I have heard of a crabapple cut down completely and then it sends up both suckers with green and some with red leaves.
If there is a union between the graphed tree and the root stock, would that be under the grade? I don't see one above the grade.
Anywho I just think its a nifty way to get more trees. What is your experience with this?
