Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis

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.

Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis (P.P.E) is a stunning climbing vine. The flowers are double flowers, meaning they have an inner pompom surrounded by outer petals. They are distinct dusty rose colour with a long bloom time from mid-summer to early fall. They can remain on the vine for up to three weeks. It is durable and easy to maintain and train.

One of the oldest clematis cultivars, Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis (P.P.E) is a winner of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

The Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis will attract pollinators to your yard or garden attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. Because it is a climbing species, support from a trellis or fence is recommended. New vines emerge from the ground, so pruning should be done in early spring.
