'Californian Buckeye'. A superb, but totally neglected, very dwarf Horse Chestnut making a small spreading tree with fragrant white flowers tinted pink in dense erect panicles in mid summer. Small, neat, very attractive, folded grey-green foliage emerges very early in the season, though is not at all affected by frost. The 'conkers' are amongst the very largest in the genus. Hardy and exceptionally drought tolerant. An old favourite of mine.
