|This is a semi-weeping, spreading, deciduous tree. Leaves are ovate, often lobed, dark green, up to 3 inches long. Red buds produce pale pink blooms, fading to white as flowers mature. Followed by red fruit approximately the size of a cherry. This tree does well in most soil, but will be more attractive if fed peat and compost. 'Thunderchild' produces single, pale pink buds, opening to white flowers, followed by dark red to purple fruit on a compact, upright, spreading, broad to oval to rounded tree.
