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.
