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.

The Pink Candles Nanking Cherry is a small deciduous cultivar of the Nanking Cherry with attractive pink flowers that then form edible fruit. The flowers emerge close to the branches resembling a pink candle, giving this cultivar its name. The berries are scarlet in colour with a sweet and slightly tart flavor. It fruits mid to late July, and the fruit size and flavor can vary greatly.

The Pink Candles Nanking Cherry is a good choice for use in hedges. It is closely related to plum trees so it can pollinate certain plum species.
