Bottlebrush Buckeye (Aesculus parviflora)

Bottlebrush buckeye is not our state tree or our state shrub, but this is one beauteous buckeye. Check out some of the mass plantings at Dawes Arboretum and Holden Arboretum and many other sites. Bottlebrush buckeyes have creamy-white, 4-petaled flowers with red stamens in lovely panicles and layered tiers of branches with 5 – 7 leaflet, palmate leaves.
