Dwarf Red Buckeye

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.

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
Rating
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.
who cares about early leaf loss?!!! Review by emmy

Believe me, the gorgeous red blossoms on every growth tip of the tree more than make up for losing leaves early! In Ohio, our tree blooms in early May - and I soon hear the songs of the Orioles that are attracted to it along with the hummingbirds. Sadly, I've moved from that location and have but a couple of seedlings I brought along with me. I remember hearing a couple of bicycle riders comment about it - thinking it was some sort of red lilac!
Dwarf Red is still a dwarf Review by JohnG2
Rating
I needed this tree as a privacy screen so I planted it directly in front of our patio. I was about to destroy it (it is a very slow grower) but I decided to give it another year. My tree is still at knee high but I have faith. Leaves didn't appear until late March and still no signs of red flowers. (None showed up last year either). The only good thing about it is that it has not died. Oh yes, I have used tree fertilizer, plant food, and kept the soil moist. The Texas heat did leave some burnt spots on the leaves last year. Hope it was because the tree was so young. I will repost the results in the future.
