Description

An exquisite, robust, suckering species which has candle-like 10 - 12 cm cream buds in early summer that open to upright panicles of white flowers with red anthers in July. The leaves are dark green in spring / summer, turning attractive, clear shades of yellow in a crisp autumn.

Once established Aesculus parviflora develops into a delightful cumulus cloud shaped shrub or very small spreading tree. Very suitable for woodland areas or as a backdrop plant in large garden borders.
