Excerpt from Chestnut Culture in the Northeastern United States
Castanea is distinguished by its broad spreading habit when grown in the open its long, sharp-pointed, coarsely serrate bright green leaves; and its wealth of creamy-tinted, fragrant catkins, which burst into bloom in midsummer and give color to the landscape long after the apple and cherry trees have scattered their petals to the winds, or the red maples have matured their keys and the elms their samaras.
