Description for Horsechestnut

Horse-chestnut are large flowering trees, similar to buckeyes, with showy, white blooms. These are followed by attractive, spiny, green seedpods from midsummer through fall. In addition to their beautiful flowers and seedpods, horse chestnut trees also exhibit interesting bark with twisted limbs. The leaves are opposite and palmately compound, with 5–7 leaflets.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Horse-chestnut or conker tree White with a yellow to pink blotch at the base of the petals Spring 50 to 75 feet Easy to grow

Planting and care

The horse chestnut can also be grown from seeds or conkers. The spiny seedpods drop from the tree in fall when ripened and crack open to reveal the horse chestnut seeds inside. Horse chestnut seeds should be planted as soon as possible. Do not allow them to dry out.

Horse chestnut seedlings can be planted in their permanent locations the following spring or fall, or whenever they reach about a foot or so tall. Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, fertile soils. Foliage tends to scorch and generally depreciate in dry conditions. This is a tap rooted tree that once established is very difficult to transplant.

Culinary use: Horse chestnut trees are native to the Balkan Peninsula (for example, Greece and today, horse chestnut seed extract is used primarily as a folk or traditional medicine.

Ornamental use: A beautiful landscape tree for parks and large lawns.

Medicinal use: It is used for its venotonic effect, vascular protection, anti-inflammatory, and free radical scavenging properties.
