Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Miss Kim Korean Lilac

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.

Miss Kim Korean Lilac is a smaller cultivar of the Korean Lilac that blooms with pale purple flowers in late spring. It produces red-pink berries in mid to late July, and while they are edible, the flavor is not highly significant.

The Miss Kim Korean Lilac makes a good hedge and privacy screen, and will attract birds and butterflies to your yard.
