An uncommon yet phenomenally attractive horsechestnut derived from a hybrid between Aesculus pavia and Aesculus sylvatica. Though plants have been in cultivation since the early 1900's they still remain unjustly elusive in gardens. The compact plants are well suited for small properties as they mature 8-12' in height. High gloss, rich green leaves provide an excellent stage for the terminal flower panicles comprised of salmon-pink and apricot-orange blossoms. As with most Aesculus species best performance will occur in a sunny exposure with humus-rich soils and even moisture.
