The Red Horse Chestnut can be counted on to produce an impressive display of candle-like rich red terminal flowers from late spring into the summer months. 'Briotii' has been selected because of its larger flower trusses, and richer red florets. This tree is a magnet for bees and hummingbirds, and can be used to provide dense shade.
