Why plant Briotti Red Horsechestnut?

As a sophisticated shade tree with vibrant color changes from Spring to Fall, Briotti 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 Briotti 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 use Briotti Red Horsechestnut in the landscape?

The colorful, cone shaped blooms are without a doubt the focal point of this Horsechestnut variety! This tree provides amazing shade at its mature size and brightens any space it's planted in, making it a common choice to plant along city streets, or as the focal point of a large landscape.

How To Plant Briotti 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 twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements Fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.

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 Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.

We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.

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!
