This tree will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed.
Ruby Red Horse Chestnut will grow to be about 40 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 40 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 4 feet from the ground. This tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH.
It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
