The Horsechestnut Buckeye tree, Aesculus hippocastanum, is a beautiful, round-headed tree perfectly suited for use in smaller yards. This flowering tree has long, dense clusters of single, bright-red flowers and are very attractive and favored by hummingbirds. Horsechestnut Buckeye trees are deciduous. This tree is widely planted in parks, avenues and in large gardens. This tree bloomes in early summer with individual flowers that have crumpled white petals which ages to dull red. Fruits have a leathery case covered with short prickles and in autumn release large seeds. The dark green foliage turns yellow-brown in fall. The nuts produced by this species are inedible. Wildlife such as squirrels gather many, and plant those that they don't eat. These trees prosper in full sun and also attracts butterflies.
