Aesculus x carnea ‘Briotii’

Briotti Red Horse Chestnut

This is a broadly rounded, dense shade tree. Bright red flowers appear in upright terminal panicles (to 8-10” long) in mid-spring. The leaves are dark green and more resistant to sun scorch than A. hippocastanum. The fall color is unremarkable. Easily grown in average, well-drained soils, in full sun to part shade. ‘Briotii’ is a cultivar that was named in 1858 to honor Pierre Louis Briot.
