Also known as Scarlet Buckeye or Firecracker Plant. A handsome, deciduous, clump forming shrub or small tree growing 10 to 20 feet in height, with a spread of 12 to 15 feet. The leaves are glossy green above and whitish beneath. The vivid red 1 ½ inch long tubular individual flowers form a 6 to10 inch long showy, erect cluster that blooms in early spring, April to May. Produces abundant hard, shiny, orange-brown inedible nuts. This tree gets it name from the whitish scar found on each brown seed, giving it the appearance of a deer’s eye, hence the name Buckeye. Does well in all soils, but grows best in average, moist, acidic, well drained soil in full sun to part shade. Native to North America. A hummingbird and butterfly favorite, plant where you can watch the flurry of activity. Typically planted for the visual interest and beauty it can bring to your landscape. Use as a specimen, ornamental, screen, hedge or in a rain garden.
