Plant Details: Bottle Brush Buckeye
4 - 10
Bottle Brush Buckeye
Aesculus parviflora has erect white bottle brush flowers up to 18" long in July. A single mature plant can have as many as 25 terminal flower spikes. A source of nectar for hummingbirds in the summer, it is often an attractor for the Swallowtail Butterfly. This is the only native shrub buckeye that retains its leaves through late summer into the fall. In the fall the foliage is bright yellow and the buckeyes ripen at this time. At maturity attains 6-8'H x 8-10'W.
Plant Growing Conditions
The Buckeyes are cleaned (no husks) and sold by the pound as soon as they begin to ripen which is generally during mid September to early October. You can expect 15-20 fresh Buckeyes per pound. We are out seed, more available early next fall 2017.
These seedlings are nice in caliper, approximately 10-12" tall. :)
