Florence Crab Apple Tree

I am trying to purchase a couple Florence Crab Apple trees for my farm. Grandma had a branch of Florence grafted on when I was growing up. Makes the BEST pickled apples! Do you know a nursery where I can purchase either the whole tree, or a scion? Thank you very much.

Spotted in my backyard in Churchton, MD

Hello! What is this? It is about 3 inches long...pretty fast...kind of shy...and appears to be carrying a similar (but not identical) bug on its back! The pic is two views I managed to get. Fascinating...but I could not find a single similar pic online. Thank you!

Hops Rhizome

Hello Good Person,
Please tell me how to permanently eradicate hops roots and rhizomes.
I think the rhizomes were planted in spring of 2016. Currently ~10 shoots are sprouting up within about a 40 square foot area. I need to kill them with assurance that they will never return.
I’ve cut back the lengthy vines (I think they are called ‘binds”) from about 18 feet long to 10 inches, and saturated the leaves, stems and a tiny portion of the roots with a systemic solution called “Poison Ivy and Trough Brush Killer,” made by Ortho. Hardware store garden shop employees told me this poison would kill the rhizome and all the roots. Is this true? Or, do I still need to dig out the rhizomes?
Should I do multiple applications of the systemic poison? If so how often?
I applied poison on Friday, and it will rain though Monday, so I plan on applying poison again on Tuesday.
Sorry I don’t know what species of hops this is, other than it’s not Chinook and I didn't take any photos.
Thanks in advance for your expertise.
