Oregon Crab Apple grows as shrub or small tree from northern California to the Anchorage Alaska area. Flowers are white, fruit becomes dark purple when ripe. Birds will probably keep you from seeing purple fruit. Thorny branches give them excellent cover so expect a twitter at any critter trying to get the bird in the bush.
