Himeringo is a Japanese name for a variety of crabapple tree (Malus prunifolia) that is often used for bonsai. It has pink flower buds that open into white petals, and green fruits that turn red in the fall. The fruits are not edible, but they are attractive and decorative. Himeringo trees need cross-pollination from another crabapple species, such as Toringo, to produce fruits. They also need protection from strong sunlight and water shortages in the summer. Himeringo trees are popular for their pretty flowers and fruits, which can be enjoyed in spring and autumn respectively.
