Aesculus Pavia Koehnei is a deciduous dwarf ornamental tree with full form and upright panicles of pink-yellow flowers in early summer. It’s rare in the UK and extremely slow growing. If you need a small ornamental tree for the lawn and have patience, this is an unusual choice. 

Aesculus Pavia Red Buckeye is native to the southern and eastern areas of the United States where it attracts hummingbirds to gardens. It’s a species of flowering tree or shrub that reaches about five metres. The variety Aesculus Pavia Koehnei is the dwarf version. It’s also known as Dwarf Chestnut.

Although it’s a dwarf variety, it maintains its full tree form and resembles a miniature tree. It’s deciduous with new foliage emerging reddish bronze in spring and maturing to lime green in summer. Spectacular flowers arrive in early summer. They are upright panicles with small yellow and pink flowers coating the stem to the branch. In autumn, brown fruits develop and it’s foliage falls. 

Height And Spread of Aesculus Pavia Koehnei
Dwarf Red Buckeye is a miniature form that reaches about 2.5 metres in height and spread after 10 years.

How Hardy is Aesculus Pavia Koehnei
This is a hardy small tree in well-drained soil. It tolerates the sun and is rarely affected by pests.

How To Use Aesculus Pavia Koehnei
This is a lovely little tree for a small garden in need of height and colour throughout the spring and summer. It suits sheltered town courtyards, cottage-style gardens, and will grow in a large well-watered and fed container on a sheltered balcony or patio.
Wildlife friendly low maintenance gardens benefit from its nectar and easy-care aspects.

How To Care For Aesculus Pavia Koehnei
Dwarf Chestnut needs little attention once it’s established. It tolerates the majority of soil including chalk and enjoys a sunny to partially sunny sheltered position.
Pruning isn’t required and may damage it, but a thick layer of organic mulch to the roots in spring will help it grow fresh new healthy foliage and lots of ornamental flowers.
Water it well until you see new growth. Container-grown Dwarf Chestnut needs regular water and food throughout summer and should be raised on feet to allow proper drainage.
