Scarlet Buckeye

Red Buckeye is an attractive flowering North American native tree that develops clusters of bold red blooms in the spring. Mature plants can grow 15 feet tall. They prefer a sunny spot in the landscape, but do enjoy afternoon shade in the hot-summer areas. In the fall, this tree drops shiny seeds called buckeyes. While attractive, the seeds are poisonous and do not typically attract deer, squirrels, or other wildlife.
