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.

Royal Frost Birch is a beautiful, cold hardy tree. It features burgundy-red-purple foliage, turning a showy yellow-orange-red in fall. The attractive white bark is striking on a winter landscape.

Royal Frost Birch loves moisture. To meet this trees’ moisture needs, try applying bark mulch over the root system. Keep in mind that this variety only likes to be pruned in summer to avoid “bleeding” sap.

The Royal Frost cultivar is popular for its upright pyramidal growth habit and fuller purple foliage.
