I live in Portland OR, US and for the last month I've been calling around
local nurseries here looking for a crabapple, Columnar Siberian Crabapple,
Malus baccata 'Columnaris'. None of them has been the lest interested in
helping me, all of them want only to sell their own stock. What really
is that this tree is one of the only 3 crabpple trees listed as acceptable
by City of
Portland for planting along the street. (ie: street tree) You would think
local nurseries would have it.
Anyway, the only online source I have found is
which has the Siberian Crab but it doesen't say "Columnar" so I don't know
if it's correct.
I have found it in a Canadian nursery, but I would have to get paperwork
Dept. of Ag to import it, plus arrainge shipping through customs.
If anyone could provide any pointers I would be very grateful.
