Grown on its own root, this cultivar forms a balanced shrub that is very close and entirely spherical. In that case it can reach a height and a width of 3 m. 'Umbraculifera' is usually top-grafted on rootstock (A. hippocastanum). The graft height is 2.20 m as a rule, sometimes 2.40 m. In this way a nicely shaped tree is formed that is very suitable for smaller gardens and narrow streets and avenues. The opposite leaves can reach 20 cm across. In autumn they colour into yellow brown. The inflorescence is the same as of the A. hippocastanum, only the panicles are shorter. The colouring from yellow into red of the macule (spot in the leaf) is striking. The root growth is obviously less profuse than of the species. The tree is susceptible to salt (for icy roads).
