Aesculus parviflora

Common name: Bottlebrush Buckeye

Non-native plant

A slow growing, large shrub that blooms on the fourth of July. Like no other shrub, the large candles of white blooms can really be a show stopper. A wide variety of interesting pollinators visit this plant both day and night. There are a number of requirements for this plant that need to be fulfilled if you wish to grow it. Bottlebrush needs moist, well drained soil in partial shade, though it does seem to do well in more sun as long as it is protected from the west, which is critical. The fruit are borne in early fall and are slightly smaller than other buckeyes.
