Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Mustang Cherry Plum

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.

Mustang Cherry Plum is a cherry-plum hybrid. You'll enjoy its fragrant white flowers in spring and sweet fruit in late August. Mustang Cherry Plums are about one inch diameter and they have a strong cherry taste. This plant is small enough to fit in moderately sized yards.

Because of Mustang Cherry Plum's genetics and cold hardiness, it can also be used as grafting rootstock.
