Buckeye, Dwarf Red
Cat# 1004 The Dwarf Red Buckeye is a clump forming, deciduous shrub or small tree growing in a rounded form 10 to 20 feet tall and wide. It is easily spotted in moist forests and low open areas in April and May when its brilliant scarlet 6 inch by 9 inch flower clusters shine like beacons. The foliage which has five parted leaflets is a rich green in the summer. Leaves fall early in the fall with no notable color. Although this species normally occurs in light shade, it can be a stunning specimen plant in a sunny location with good soil moisture.
