Beauty of Moscow 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.

Beauty of Moscow Lilac is a flowering shrub known for its highly fragrant, double flowers. The buds start as a pale pink and give way white blooms that have double the number of petals compared to other Lilacs. While the flowers are mostly white they can often take on a subtle pink blush.

The striking blooms, abundant flowers, and long bloom time make the Beauty of Moscow Lilac one of the top Lilac cultivars. The flowers are known for attracting hummingbirds, bees, and other pollinators to your landscape.
