Darn Gorgeous Rose
Thunderchild Flowering Crab

Developed by DNA Gardens, Darn Gorgeous Rose is an ornamental shrub that produces radiant red teacup blossoms throughout the summer.

If you are looking to add a splash of colour to your home garden, Darn Gorgeous Rose is for you.

Our growers think this is truly a "Darn Gorgeous" rose and is a pleasure to see growing in our fields.

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.
