Aesculus parviflora

Primarily native to the Southeastern US this deciduous flowering shrub does best in shady spots with moist loamy soil as far North as zone 4. Mass plant for a show-stopping border or alone as a feature, the panicles that burst forth mid-summer covered in delicate white blooms and whispy pink hairs are sure to please the gardener as well as the hummingbirds and butterflies it attracts. In the fall, the leaves turn to golden yellow and the Buckeyes (nuts) are covered in a yellow husk. 

Once established, this shrub is very low maintenance although we recommend frequent watering for the first couple or years to give the roots a good shot at taking hold. Or, better yet, use one to fill in the corner of a rain garden. Bottlebrush Buckeyes tend to hold their leaves well into the fall providing cover for birds and wildlife.

This shrub multiplies via suckers and is easy to naturalize. Pruning is not necessary as it tends to grow into large, nicely-shaped mounds.

Comes to you in a 2 gallon pot

*Please note: Our native plants are field-grown and untreated with pesticides or fertilizers (how it should be!) Because of this, some varieties may show spots, browning or holes in the foliage during the fall months. Our plants have been organically treated if needed and are healthy and strong.
