Why plant Briotii Red Horsechestnut?
As a sophisticated shade tree with vibrant color changes from Spring to Fall, Brioti Red Horsechestnut makes it easy to admire its elegance. In early spring, light green and pink buds will start to form throughout the intricate branching structure, and soon after, will open up to reveal groups of golden tinted foliage. As a few weeks pass by, cone shaped flower clusters begin to bloom in an upright nature, accenting the maturing glossy, green foliage. The blooms begin to drop as summer approaches, leaving behind those dark green leaves and providing an amazing shade canopy. Fall will bring the final transformation to the foliage: a glistening golden leaf. With such captivating changes throughout the season, the Brioti Red Horsechestnut is sure to catch the eye of everyone who passes by!
The Red Horsechestnut has been planted and grown for years because of the incredible shade that its canopy shape provides. It's grown quite often in large residential landscapes, as well as in parks, or along city streets. Its striking nature has continued to award it as the focal point of any landscape it may be planted in.

How To Plant Briotii Red Horsechestnut
Your Red Horsechestnut will grow well in a wide range of soil conditions as long as the soil does not stay wet. It should be planted in a sunny area of your yard for the best flowering. As with all trees, keep your newly planted Horsechestnut watered.
How To Water
Water thoroughly for the first month after planting to help your plant get established in its new home. This tree will need about one gallon per tree every week.
How To Fertilize
Your Brioti Red Horsechestnut will only need fertilizing once a year. In late fall, feed with our Elements Starter Plant Food!
How To Prune
When needed, prune your Horsechestnut in mid-summer. Spring pruning causes them to bleed excessively and late summer pruning could promote growth that would not harden off before winter, making it susceptible to cold damage!

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
