Apple Blossoms and Growing Apple Trees

Some symbolic meanings of apple blossoms are good fortune, hope, purity, sensuality and motherhood. Apple blossoms were honored by the ancient Celts as a symbol of love. Below photos of apple blossoms are from my garden this week. This is an Anna Apple Tree: Malus domestica which is a wonderful tree for Southern California. I keep it pruned each year to keep the size of the overall tree as a dwarf and it still produces heavily middle and late spring. This tree can be expected to grow to 10 feet high and 10 feet wide. Apples are sweet and crispy for eating and also make a great addition for juicing.
This is an easy to grow tree with beautiful rewards.
