Thunderchild Flowering Crab

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.

The Korean Maple is an ideal accent tree, and is similar in size and shape to the Japanese Maple, but much hardier.

The leaves have long, finger-like lobes that turn striking shades of yellow, orange and red in autumn.

It is recommended that pruning be done during the summer after the leaves have fully developed to ensure sap does not "bleed" down the tree.
