Magnificent Spring Color

The Dwarf Red Buckeye is a hardy deciduous shrub or small tree and one of the first plants to leaf out in the spring.  It looks splendid along a garden path, beside a patio or as an accent plant at the edge of a garden.

 It is especially pretty when underplanted with early spring wildflowers. Its large, drooping, dark green leaves provide plenty of interest throughout the growing season.

Its scarlet 9 inch panicles of blossoms will herald the approaching summer like no other plant in your yard.  The lavish, carmine blooms are especially attractive to hummingbirds.  Butterflies and other pollinators will be drawn to your garden as well, but deer will leave you alone.

You can’t go wrong with this hardy shrub.  Plant it in sun or light shade and leave it alone. It seems to thrive on neglect and will already bloom when it’s about 3 feet tall.  You can fuss with it a bit to grow it as a tree, but it’s generally left to grow as a rounded shrub.  The 5-part leaflet foliage on this 10-20 foot plant is a vibrant green all summer long, so even when not in bloom, it’s a great accent to your landscape.

My Favorite Tree Review by Moonshadow
I have planted this tree in the last two homes I owned. I also had the bottleneck shrubs which had white flowers (can't find then anywhere). I have moved again and couldn't locate at any of the local nurseries so I'm taking a chance and just ordered one from you. I absolutely love this tree. I hope it grows from the plant I get from you. It's gorgeous!
Hardy tree Review by Mo
I have transplanted this tree 3 times and the deer ate it down to the branches two years in a row. It came back this year better than ever.
root description Review by Lola A
2 years ago I called and said I was not happy with the roots on the dwarf red buckeye you sent me. You told me that all it really has is a long central root and that was normal. Now I have a very nice shaped growing red buckeye and am more than happy.
Really Unique! Review by SuperGirl
I love this tree. It's really unique and truly beautiful when in bloom. Unlike any other tree I've ever seen.
Seems to thrive in any soil... Review by Bridgett Edwards
This little tree seems to thrive in any soil. I basically put the little guy in the ground when I received him and just emptied the entire contents in the ground and watered him. I probably need to add some good soil because he's not growing as fast as I would like, but it's my fault. I do not have a green thumb. :) Nevertheless, he's blooming and pretty as a picture.
