Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Klondike Amur Cherry

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 Klondike Amur Cherry is an attractive cultivar which features showy, peeling gold bark and textured oval leaves that turn bright yellow in fall. It blooms with fragrant white flowers in mid spring, and produces tiny, tart black berries through the summer. The Klondike Amur Cherry was bred to have improved stem strength and stronger branching.

This tree makes a great addition to urban gardens and commercial planting, and is immune to black knot.
