This medium sized tree is a variegated form of the sweet chestnut. Attractive, dark green, deeply serrated leaves have a broad creamy white margin and turn a bronzed gold in autumn before it bares catkins. As it ages the wonderful retiform twisted, almost latticed bark develops. Castanea sativa ‘Albomarginata’ has an attractive rounded/pyramidal form and produces edible sweet chestnuts in spiky yellow/brown jackets in the autumn which are also popular with wildlife. As the wood is high in tannin, chestnut trees are often coppiced. It will grow well in most conditions but prefers a lighter soil without lime. A beautiful tree ‘Albomarginata’ will grow to 8 x 6 meters in 20 years.
