With a beautiful upright rounded form, Ohio Buckeye (Aesculus glabra) works as either a standout specimen or in a natural grouping. You'll be thrilled with the exceptional spring-flowering display.

Tall spires of creamy-yellow panicles cover the outside of the canopy. Give your garden visitors a treat and plan to enjoy these noteworthy blooms for several weeks.

Butterflies and hummingbirds appreciate the nectar resource of these long-lasting flowers. Site them where you can see them from an outdoor seating area...a blooming Buckeye makes a perfect focal point.

The summer foliage is another attractive feature to enjoy with family and friends nearby. Ohio Buckeye foliage features sturdy stems and a marvelously bold texture.

This is no "wimpy" tree. Everything from the corrugated leaves, to the corky bark to the leathery, prickled nut husks looks strong.

Just wait until the temperatures drop in autumn. The large leaves fire up into an intense red-orange that can be seen all the way down the street.

Use Ohio Buckeye with pride in a mulched bed underplanted with a collection of Hosta and Fern. Or, install spreading Densiformis Yew shrubs at the same time as you plant your tree.

Like all Buckeye, the Ohio provides additional interest with the mahogany brown nuts. Keep one in your pocket for good luck, or collect them to create handsome homemade wreaths for sale.

We're excited to offer this outstanding native selection. Order Ohio Buckeye trees from Nature Hills today!
