Aesculus

Aesculus also known as Horse Chestnut or Buckeye are mostly large, stately trees, popular in parks and for street planting. Though some are compact small forms with variable attractive flower panicles of different colours and beautiful autumn foliage.

Native to the northern hemisphere, Aesculus are easily cultivated and will thrive in almost any soils, in sun or light shade.
