In Absolute Awe Autumn Splendor Buckeye

  • Scarlet-Orange to Maroon Fall Foliage
  • Petite Creamy Yellow Springtime Flowers
  • Beautiful Accent Tree

The Autumn Splendor Buckeye (Aesculus x arnoldiana 'Autumn Splendor') was made to be a complete showstopper. Each season brings a new reason to sit out and enjoy its beautiful colors.

In the spring, the tree may just be green, but the creamy yellow flowers that bloom will leave you in awe. But make way because you are about to be blown away with its fall coloration.

The season that gives this magnificent tree its name of Autumn Splendor Buckeye is all thanks to the scarlet-orange to maroon leaves in the fall.

These beautiful colors shouldn’t be put to waste, so planting this tree near your deck, porch, or patio gives you the opportunity to enjoy the little things like this stunning tree.

Add an extra splash of coloration into your gardens and make your garden look elegantly full. The colors add an exemplary accent tree and will make your garden look professionally cared for.

It is best to prune this tree in the late winter after extreme cold temperatures have passed.

The Autumn Splendor Buckeye deserves to be spoiled and you can do so by planting in full sun to partial shade with well-drained soil.

A plant that will put on a show all year, every year is rare, so jump at the opportunity today and order the Autumn Splendor Buckeye!
