Hybrid Horsechestnut - Garden Photo of the Day

Hybrid Horsechestnut  

This is the flower of Aesculus pavia x flava. It was taken at the Longenecker Gardens at the UW-Arboretum in Madison, WI.

I have never seen anything like this..had to share.


  1. Interesting to compare the photo of A pavia x flava with the photo I posted earlier this week of A x carnea. (www.siteandinsight.com/blog) The flowers I saw in Ferrara, Italy appear much larger with more distinct yellow tones. It's possible that is due to more developed bloom, or it may be a feature of the cultivar. In either case, both are quite beautiful.

    1. Thanks Pat - I think these hybrids are so beautiful....
