The outstanding Xanthoceras Sorbifolia
Focus on the Xanthoceras Sorbifolia or Yellowhorn
The Xanthoceras Sorbifolia, also know as Yellowhorn or Chinese Flowering Chestnut, is a beautiful yet unknown bush with numerous assets.

Belonging to the same botanical family as the Maple, the Chestnut or the Goldenrain Tree, the Xanthoceras has a distinctive, light and decorative foliage. It reminds that of the Rowans' foliage. It is dark green in summer and turns a nice shade of yellow in autumn.

The beautiful, fragrant blossom is quite melliferous. The long grapes of white flowers appear in April and are followed by small, edible seeds/nuts with a taste of chestnut. The fruits are eaten in autumn, once dried.
