  •  When I bought my crabapple tree (10+ / 0-)

    several years ago, I purposely did it in spring to see which ones had no crabapples left on them and which ones did.  I wanted one that wildlife could eat, so I chose one that didn't have any crabapples left on it.  

    The sales person who rung me up thought I was a little daft for passing up the varieties that still had crabapples on them and thus passing up the winter-long visual interest.

    Of course, there are some critters I DON'T want to feed, so that's why I buy hosta in the fall so I can see which varieties have lasted all summer without becoming slug food.  ;-)
