Large Leaf Linden vs Thunderchild Flowering Crab

Tilia platyphyllos

Malus x. astringens Thunderchild

Large Leaf Linden
Thunderchild Flowering Crab

Large Leaf Linden is a tall, deciduous tree native to Europe. Large Leaf Linden features oblong leaves that turn from yellow-green to brilliant yellow in the fall. Large Leaf Linden is ideal as a shade or ornamental tree in a larger yard.

Thunderchild Flowering Crab is a hybrid crab apple known for its attractive and fragrant dark pink blossoms and deep purple mature leaves.

Tree farmers will find this hybrid appealing as a pollinator for other apples, while home growers will enjoy the red pome's ability to attract flocks of Cedar Waxwings in the early spring.

This species is reportedly resistant to fireblight.

Saskatchewan's own Percy Wright was the famous breeder of this and many other cold hardy varieties.
