Aesculus Hippocastanum Baumannii or Horse Chestnut Baumannii
Aesculus Hippocastanum Baumannii, a showier variety of the common horse chestnut tree, already one of most beautiful of the large flowering trees hardy in the British Isles. Baumannii produces exceptionally showy double flowers in May. These are mature trees sold in a multi-stem form.

Retaining all the noteworthy qualities of its close relatives, Horse Chestnut Baumannii variety brings some distinct features of its own. Its habit, although also spreading, is both taller and narrower than it is the case with common horse chestnut. The candelabra-like flowers are much showier in this variety, pure white and double, borne in upright terminal panicles. Finally, one of the most important features of the Baumanii is that it does not produce conkers, and, therefore, does not seed. The deciduous foliage consists of large, glossy palmate leaves, dark green up until the fall, when they turn to warm hues of brown and reddish.

Introduced to Britain 17th century, the common Horse Chestnut is a reliable performer in the garden, and the same is true for the Baumannii variety. Easy to grow and to care for, this flowering tree will thrive in deep, nutrient-rich soils that are moist but well-drained. Tolerates both full sun and partial shade, sheltered and exposed locations. Considered low maintenance, Aesculus Hippocastanum Baumannii does not require extensive pruning to stay in shape. Routine removal of dead or damaged branches will keep the plant healthy and its habit neat.

 Although the species is native to the Balkans, Aesculus Hippocastanum Baumannii was actually discovered as a sport in 1820 in Geneva. Fully hardy, this cultivar can adapt to the severest European climates. Recognized for its outstanding constitution and attractive looks, Horse Chestnut Baumannii is also a recipient of the Award of Garden Merit by Royal Horticultural Society.

A worthy addition to any garden where there is plenty of space, Aesculus Hippocastanum Baumannii has a maximum size of over 12 metres, with a spread wider than 8 metres.

Versatile and decorative, Horse Chestnut Baumannii is a great choice for a specimen tree, where its imposing size and profuse display of attractive flowers can be fully appreciated. Pair it with low-growing, flowering shrubs or perennials for an enhanced spring interest or plant in rows to form an avenue or frame a walkway. Its dense foliage makes it a good candidate for a shade tree. We offer this specimen both in a multi-stem tree form and as a root ball which offers you the best value for money as root balls are the best option for mass planting, particularly when using trees for lining avenues or walkways.
