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 Sunrise Rose is a popular shrub due to its yellow blooms that fade to a peachy-pink later in the summer and fall. These double flowers are lightly-scented and emerge from distinctive orange flower buds. It has a compact habit of growth, making this a refined addition to your garden.

The Morden Sunrise Rose has glossy green foliage during the spring and summer months, with leaves turning yellow in the fall. It produces showy orange rose hips in mid to late fall, and is quite disease resistant.
