Castanea mollissima
Chinese Chestnut

In addition to the terminal and axillary buds for next year's growth, species of Chestnut may have elongated auricles or stipules at the base of the petioles, persistent into Autumn as dried-up, bristle-like structures. The alternate leaves of Chinese Chestnut tend to have asymmetrical leaf blade bases and pubescent veins on their undersides.
