Indian Horse Chestnut

The common European Horse Chestnut (A. hippocastanum) is unlikely to survive climate change but this Indian version has better summer heat tolerance and is less vulnerable to disease than its European cousin. Prominent pink and white flowers appear in summer and provide dense shade later. Drops distinctive ‘conker’ seeds. Medium growth rate.

How to grow

Plant in a fertile, well drained soil enriched with organic matter. Water regularly during establishment. Fertilise in spring.
