Product Details

Aesculus carnea Plantierensis, known as Plantierensis Horse Chestnut, was originally bred in France in the 1890s.

It produces a stunning display of exotic flowers, pale pink with yellow throats, in the spring and its large leaves are deeply cut.

It is sterile so doesn’t produce conkers and importantly it is resistant to leaf afflictions that effect other members of its genus late on in the growing season.

Too big for gardens, Aesculus carnea Plantierensis makes a great parkland tree which thrives on most well-draining soils.

Mature height: 20m+
