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 Morden Amorette Rose is a flowering hybrid shrub that is a compact grower, with bright reddish-pink blooms. The double-flowered blooms are lightly scented. This shrub blooms from late spring to late summer, and has glossy green leaves that turn yellow in the fall.

The Morden Amorette Rose is popular as it is fairly disease resistant, and is a vigorous grower.
