Horse Chestnut is a medium sized deciduous tree that is native to Greece but has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. It produces large nuts.

Autumn Blaze Maple is a striking maple variety. It is a hybrid between Silver and Red Maple with the preferred qualities of each: the fast growing nature of Silver Maple combined with the brilliant fall color and strength of Red Maple.

Autumn Blaze Maple even provides winter interest with its attractive, upright, oval shaped form. Ideally suited as a shade or accent tree, this maple variety will be your new favorite tree.
