Aesculus Hippocastanum 'Baumannii'

The White Horse Chestnut tree, Aesculus hippocastanum 'Baumannii', is smaller than the wild variety and its flowers are mostly white, with small pink dots in the centre.

White Horse Chestnut trees can reach a height of about 20 metres. Standard trees are the largest size that we deliver and you can browse all of our other varieties of Chestnut trees.

For our full range, take a look at our complete list of trees for sale.

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 measuWhite 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 White Horse Chestnut trees:

This tree is a variety of Common Horse Chestnut with doubly thick flowers. It also doesn't grow quite so tall, which makes it a better choice for a garden and adds to the ornamental value, because you can see more of the flowers from the ground.
It is a sterile tree, so you won't get any conkers. This may be bad news for the kids, but it also means that this tree is safe to plant around livestock as Horse Chestnuts, despite the name, are poisonous to most animals.

History & uses of Aesculus hippocastanum 'Baumannii':

Aesculus hippocastanum 'Baumannii' appeared as a natural mutation, called a sport, of the common chestnut in 1820. It is sometimes listed as Aesculus hippocastanum 'Flore Pleno'.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
