Aesculus parviflora is easily grown in average soil in part to full shade and features striking white flowers on tall upright panicles.
Aesculus pavia grows showy, erect, 4-10” long panicles of red, narrow-tubular flowers in spring. Smooth, light brown, 1-2” diameter round seed capsules ripen in the fall. Seeds are poisonous and are avoided by most wildlife. Typically occurs in low rich wooded valleys, wooded slopes and stream banks. Flowers attract ruby-throated hummingbirds!
No pruning is needed but give shrubs some space—great for privacy hedge and property border. Ours are grown from seed collected from local plants.
