Plant Details: Red Buckeye
5 - 9
Aesculus pavia opens its to large orange red panicles of flowers in early spring just as the large palmate foliage develop. It is a source of nectar for early migrating hummingbirds which is the chief pollinator. A really spectacular spring bloomer shrub/small tree. After it blooms the buckeyes develop for wildlife food then the foliage slowly goes down hill and by October it's limb structure will be essentially bare exposing the stately growth habit and next year buds. A relativity short but spectacular display!
We also have seed available for a short time beginning mid Septemberish for about two weeks. 1 lb. equals approximately 8-10 un-husked fruits. We can put these into a USPS Priority Mail box for $5.50 - $9.00 depending on your zip code.
