Thunderchild Flowering Crab
Cherry Go Round™ Reblooming Hydrangea

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.

Cherry Go Round Reblooming Hydrangea™ is a compact flowering shrub. The deep red flowers will bloom in late spring and last until fall. The mophead-like flowers add multi season interest to your landscape. The petite form is well suited for urban yards and tight spaces.

Flowers grow on old wood which requires only spent flowers and damaged wood to be removed. The Cherry Go Round Reblooming Hydrangea is part of the Bloomin’ Easy® collection.

On the prairies, some customers will plant the Cherry Go Round Reblooming Hydrangea in pots and over winter them in their garage. They need additional winter protection for the flower buds.

Note: Flower colour may be influenced by the soil pH. In more alkaline soils the flowers will emerge more pink whereas those in acidic soils will be a deep purplish red. They prefer slightly acidic soils with a pH of 5.7-6.5.
