The paper evaluated ornamental properties in 38 taxa from the North American flora growing in the arboretum of Mountain-Taiga Station – Far Eastern Division of the Russian Science Academy. Complex estimation of ornamental properties by the method of O. S. Zalyvskaya and N. A. Babich revealed a high degree of ornamental properties in the species investigated. The species were divided into three groups according to their ornamental degrees. The highest marks (33–39) by 10 evaluation criteria belonged to 24 taxa. These plants are distinguished by ornamental flowers and fruits, flowering abundance, and winter hardiness. 12 taxa are characterized by the average ornamental properties degree (21–30 marks). They have lower winter hardiness. Plants with low ornamental properties degree (18–19) have not yet entered the generative phase under arboretum conditions. Thus, the plants studied have different degrees of ornamental properties, but most of them can be used for landscape design in Primorsky region.
