Aesuculus parviflora is a highly attractive small tree that resembles more of a broad skirted shrub that tops out at around 10'-12'.  The candelabra-like racemes of white flowers with exerted stamens cloak the plant in early summer and are attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies and humans, alike. You need about an 18' footprint for this one, as it grows!  it is quite a conversation piece!

Bottlebrush buckeye is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. It prefers rich, moist loams and is intolerant of dry soils, particularly in the early years before its root system becomes well established. Pruning is usually unnecessary, although be prepared for it to become broad in girth! Though native to rich woodland areas in Alabama, Georgia, Missouri and northern Florida, it is winter hardy throughout USDA Zone 5.

Information

Prices listed are subject to change, based upon size change and availability.

We are a small local nursery with limited shipping capability. We will do our best to ship smaller material (usually 1 or 2 gallon), although we can sometimes ship larger plants with the pots removed.

We have some species that are not listed, as we have too few of them to make a full listing plausible. You can always inquire.

We will consider contract growing an order with appropriate advance notice and availability of seed, cuttings or lining out stock.
