Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Dolgo Crab Apple

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.

Dolgo Crab Apple is one of the hardiest species of crab apple.

This fruit tree accent tree combination is commonly used in urban landscapes.

Dolgo Crab Apple produces clusters of white flowers before its deep green foliage emerges. Its small apple-like fruit is great for jams and jellies.
