Horse Chestnut

Horse Chestnut

Aesculus hippocastanum 50-75' x 40-70'

Many Maine dooryards still feature these huge shade trees with their magnificent white 8-12" candle-like flower clusters standing erect and covering the large conical tree in late spring. Distinctive five-palmate leaves look tropical and are a rich dark matte blue-green.

Wood traditionally used in charcoal production; bark in medicines, leather tanning and fabric dying; seeds in bookbinding. Squirrels and deer will clean up any seeds you don’t use.

Prefers moist well-drained soil, sun or partial shade. Tolerates salt. Native to southeastern Europe. Z3. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root trees)
