AKA Aesculus x carnea is a beautiful tree when in bloom. I understand that many of the parks and boulevards in Paris are decorated with this tree.
Here's my question, other than bloom, what redeeming qualities does this tree have? Following pix show the foliage disorder that we observe for fully three months of the year.
Here's a great example why one should observe trees all year round, not just when they are "pretty".
AFAIK clonal selections are all susceptable to this disorder.
