Aesculus x mutabilis ‘Induta’ Horse Chestnut

Description: Aesculus x mutabilis 'Induta', also known as 'Rosea Nana' is a slender, broadly columnar slow growing tree. Pointed finely toothed leaves emerge bright pink, later yellow then dark green, turning orange-red in the autumn. Produces a stunning show of apricot and yellow flowers in May and June. This variety is much smaller than others, perfect for the smaller garden.

History: Introduced in 1905. Received an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1959.

Aesculus Growing Tips: Most varieties require a lot of space to grow. Thrive in almost any well drained soils. Prefer to be planted in full sun or partial shade.
