Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Josee Reblooming Lilac

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.

Josee Reblooming Lilac is the perfect lilac for an urban yard. Unlike most lilacs, this shrub is capable of producing fragrant blooms multiple times per year. Plus, Josee Reblooming Lilac is significantly smaller than all the other lilacs we carry so you don't have to worry about it taking over your yard.

You can plant it as a hedge or on its own–it's beautiful either way. For more hedge row ideas, check out Miss Kim Korean Lilac. The Josee is comparable to the Bloomerang.
