Also known as Scarlet Buckeye or Firecracker Plant. A handsome, deciduous, clump forming shrub or small tree growing 10 to 20 feet in height, with a spread of 12 to 15 feet. The leaves are glossy green above and whitish beneath. The vivid red 1 inch long tubular individual flowers form a 6 to10 inch long showy, erect cluster that blooms in early spring, April to May. Produces abundant hard, shiny, orange-brown inedible nuts. This tree gets it name from the whitish scar found on each brown seed, giving it the appearance of a deers eye, hence the name Buckeye. Does well in all soils, but grows best in average, moist, acidic, well drained soil in full sun to part shade. Native to North America. A hummingbird and butterfly favorite, plant where you can watch the flurry of activity. Typically planted for the visual interest and beauty it can bring to your landscape. Use as a specimen, ornamental, screen, hedge or in a rain garden.
