Horse Chestnut
Miss Kim Korean Lilac

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.

A top CO2 absorbing species. Experts think this tree may help climate change more than others.

Miss Kim Korean Lilac is a smaller cultivar of the Korean Lilac that blooms with pale purple flowers in late spring. It produces red-pink berries in mid to late July, and while they are edible, the flavor is not highly significant.

The Miss Kim Korean Lilac makes a good hedge and privacy screen, and will attract birds and butterflies to your yard.
