The Red Horsechestnut is a hybrid between the European Aesculus hippocastanum (Horsechestnut) and the North American A. pavia (Red Buckeye). This small deciduous tree grows on average to medium moist well drained soil, in full to part sun. It produces reddish-pink tube like flowers in May, like its parent, the Red Buckeye. It is regarded mainly as an ornamental tree in large, open green spaces.
