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 Centennial Rose is a showy flowering shrub with hot pink double-flowered blooms and yellow centers. This shrub has dark green and glossy foliage, which turns yellow in the later fall months and exhibits bright red rose hips.

The Morden Centennial Rose is a popular variety due to its high disease resistance and brilliant color.
