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.

Budd's Yellow Dogwood is a select cultivar of Yellow Twig Dogwood that reaches 5 ft tall and wide. It is adaptable and disease resistant which allows it to survive in difficult areas. The striking yellow twigs will add winter interest to your landscape and contrast nicely with Red Osier Dogwood. You can also try contrasting Budd's Yellow Dogwood with more textured trees such as evergreens.
