Horsechestnut is common in parks and cemeteries of Montreal. Its flowers are greatly appreciated, they are white, stained red and grouped in large panicles of 15 to 30 cm in height. The flowers are very showy for the major part of the month of June.

Like the American Buckeye (Aesculus glabra), the leaves are compound - from five to nine leaflets - and sometimes remind hemp leaves...

The fruits, generally abundant, are decorative but toxic to most living beings... except squirrels !

This tree tolerates urban conditions, yet fears late frost and drought.
