no image

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 Russian Mountain Ash is a stunning ornamental tree with the perfect pop of colour. It bears white flowers in the spring and gorgeous orange berries in the fall. Birds enjoy the berries that persist into the winter. It grows tall and can thrive in an urban setting making this an attractive ornamental tree for your landscaping project.
