Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Big Tooth Maple

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.

Big Tooth Maple is a versatile, cold hardy maple variety that is ideal for small landscapes. It has high ornamental appeal due to its striking red-gold autumn foliage and multi-stemmed form.

Big Tooth Maple is highly deer resistant and drought tolerant as well. Keep in mind the size and form of this tree can vary due to climate, moisture, and growing conditions. In drier spots, you’ll notice Big Tooth Maple is more shrub like. In moist, full sun conditions, this tree can grow to be up to 50 ft tall. Plan your site accordingly.
