Horse Chestnut
Ussurian Pear (Siberian)

Horse Chestnut is a medium sized deciduous tree that is native to Greece but has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. Produces large nuts and both nuts and foliage have many medicinal uses.

Ussurian Pear (aka Manchurian or Siberian Pear) is the most cold hardy of all pear species.

This self-pollinating pear bears white flowers in the spring and has good fall colour, making it an exceptional ornamental addition to any garden. However, it has a tendency to branch quite low and is often used in shelterbelts and hedges too.

Note: the fruit produced by this pear is rather mealy and not a choice edible. It is primarily grown for its attractive flowers and pollination of other pear varieties, or as cold hardy rootstock, but is an excellent addition to any shelterbelt.
