Aesculus pavia

Common name: Red Buckeye

Native plant

Red Buckeye is a fantastic understory tree for lightly shaded yards. The red, tubular flowers begin to open in late April, a display like no other small tree we know. Needing rich soil, Red Buckeye prefers areas where water drains through but does not stand for long. The telltale buckeyes produced in late summer, will fall from the tree in early autumn.
