Buckeye, Autumn Splendor


As you might guess, Autumn Splendor was selected primarily for its outstanding red fall color, which is unheard of in other buckeyes. The large, somewhat glossy disease resistant leaves are medium green in summer, turning a bright orange-red in the fall. Large, yellow-green upright flower panicles adorn the tree in mid spring, eventually giving way to rounded fruits containing the nuts that squirrels relish. Tidy, rounded form and moderate size make this tree a 3-season choice for today's smaller gardens. Easy to grow in most soils but benefits from good watering during dry spells.
