Plant details

This cousin of our native horse chestnut tree is not as frequenly seen in the UK. It has many good points to recommend it: it will grow in any soil, has an open, elegant shape, and has wonderful erect spires of creamy white flowers from May until early summer. The flowers are followed by masses of conkers in the autumn, all in shells which are less spiny than their British counterparts.

Genus: Aesculus

Species: indica
