Aesculus Carnea Briotti

The Red Horse Chestnut tree, Aesculus carnea Briottii, is smaller than the wild variety and its flowers are red, pink and orange.
Red Horse Chestnut trees can reach a height of about 20 metres.
Standard trees are the largest size that we deliver.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.

General description of Red Horse Chestnut trees:

This is a beautiful large tree, with pink and orange tutti-frutti coloured cones of flowers that contrast well with the handsome, dark green leaves. It is a round headed tree that is ideal for avenue planting.

History & uses of Aesculus carnea Briottii:

Aesculus carnea 'Briottii' is a hybrid of the European Common Horse Chestnut and an American chestnut tree known as Red Buckeye, Aesculus pavia.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
