Ruby Red Horsechestnut is a vastly underutilized shade tree in Wyoming. Early in its life it will be pyramidal but transforms itself in to a rounded, dense shade tree. In early summer it will develop a plethora of deep scarlet flowers in ten inch panicles at each branch tip that are quite attractive to us humans, bees and hummingbirds! This tree is not for the windswept prairie—it’s best used in the confines of our towns and cities. Be the first to grow this specimen tree in Wyoming!
