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 Morden Blush Rose has white flowers with shell pink overtones with a tea-like scent. The double-flowers bloom in spring and summer, emerging from distinctive pink buds. The foliage is dark green and glossy, turning yellow in the fall, with tomato-orange rose hips.

The Morden Blush Rose is popular for its cold-hardiness, and is also resistant to disease.
