Thunderchild Flowering Crab
White Rugosa Rose

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.

White Rugosa Rose has many characteristics that will make it both a reliable and beautiful addition to your yard. Tolerant of many conditions and incredibly cold hardy, this rose can withstand salt, poor soil, and wind.

White Rugosa Rose produces white flowers that are attractive and pure white with a papery texture. It will make a great impenetrable hedge or border that is also deer resistant.

Note: This variety is from a seed source, not cuttings. Although somewhat true to seed and color expect some variability.
