Description

Information Only - An unusual form of our native horse chestnut, Aesculus hippocastanum 'Laciniata' has interesting, exceptionally deeply cut leaves. These leaves are dark green in spring and summer and can turn butter yellow in a good, crisp autumn. Upright panicles of attractive white flowers appear on the branches of established plants in late spring.

A very handsome tree with intriguing foliage!
