Interesting Cultivar

The Aesculus flava 'Vestita,' also known as the Yellow Pavia, is a large tree that is not affected by chestnut blight or chestnut leaf miner. This makes the tree a very interesting cultivar.


Oval Crown

Characteristic of the Aesculus flava 'Vestita' is the broad, oval crown with widely spaced branches.


Leaf Color and Leaf Shape

The leaf of the Aesculus flava 'Vestita' is fresh green and consists of 5 to 7 leaf lobes. In spring, the leaf turns yellow-pink before acquiring the fresh green color. In autumn, the leaf changes to yellow-violet before falling off quite early, revealing the Aesculus flava 'Vestita's distinctive winter appearance.



The Yellow Pavia blooms in spring with the distinctive flower clusters of a chestnut, which, in the case of the Aesculus flava 'Vestita,' are yellow with red coloring.


Fruits - Chestnuts

After flowering, the tree produces its characteristic fruits, also known as chestnuts, in the autumn.



The Aesculus flava 'Vestita' thrives in almost any location, from sun to shade, as long as the tree has sufficient moisture. The tree can tolerate pavement and air pollution well, making it an excellent choice for urban areas.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
