About Stamp Series

The sweet fragrance of a crabapple tree in bloom is one of the most pleasant reminders that spring is, quite literally, in the air. The blossoms depicted on this year’s flower stamp issue pay tribute to two Canadian-bred varieties.

The pretty bright-pink flower of Malus 'Rosseau' was introduced in 1928 by the Central Experimental Farm’s pioneering ornamental plant breeder, Isabella Preston. The delicate white bloom of Malus 'Maybride' is a dwarf cultivar bred by Preston’s successors, Daniel Foster Cameron and Dexter Reid Sampson.

While the scented blossoms are much welcomed in the spring, the trees, common to many Canadian yards and gardens, are often grown for the jams and jellies that can be made from the small, somewhat sour fruit. Serious foodies also note that crabapple wood is excellent for smoking meats and cheeses.

Designed by Sputnik Design Partners Inc., with illustration by Marie-Élaine Cusson and photography by Mark Olson, the booklet, souvenir sheet and Official First Day Cover were printed by Canadian Bank Note and the coils by the Lowe-Martin Group.
