Aesculus wangii

Closely related to A. assamica, and therefore A. indica also, this extremely rare and endangered species is found in N. Vietnam, very near the Chinese border at 1770m alt, where it makes magnificent forest specimens with large but elegant foliage and distinctive bark, breaking away in plates. The emerging foliage is copper-orange tinted and the creamy-white flowers are borne in tall panicles in early summer. Fruits are HUGE, measured at up to 8.5cm! Hardy in the milder parts of the UK where it will probably make a medium sized tree eventually.

Pot size: 2L
