Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Anthony Waterer Spiraea

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.

Anthony Waterer Spiraea is a low maintenance shrub with a dwarf, rounded form. In spring and summer rosy pink blooms emerge against green foliage. Its tolerance of a variety of well-drained soils makes it an ideal foundation, landscaping, or border plant.

If deer and rabbit are an issue on your property, consider planting Anthony Waterer Spiraea for its deer/rabbit resistance. Due to its compact form, minimal pruning is required.
