European Horsechestnut – Aesculus hippocastanum ‘Baumannii’

gold line

European Horsechestnut, a native of the Balkan Peninsula, is a popular tree grown throughout the

Eastern United States. It can grow from 80 to 100 feet tall which makes it most suitable for large

landscape spaces. The cultivar, Baumannii, has double, white-flowering panicles that range

from 5 inches to 12 inches in length and does not produce the characteristic buckeye fruit of the

species (see #    Memorial Union Loop).
