Positive Horseshoe On May 27, 2004, Horseshoe from Efland, NC (Zone 7a) wrote:

A great low-maintenance fruit tree to grow! The flowers are very attractive and unusual, the leaves are very glossy on top, and the tree itself is seldom bothered by bugs.

Note: Regarding the flowers in pictures above, the flowers grow facing down to the ground. The branch they are growing on is lifted up to show the flowers and you are viewing the underside of the leaves
