15g Bottlebrush Buckeye
Aesculus parviflora


White Flowers/Native

Small deciduous tree. In early summer grows masses of spectacular 6-24" long upright panicles of white flowers are borne atop the rich, dark green foliage. The plant has a broad-rounded habit, lending itself to mass plantings. It adapts to a range of light conditions from full sun to moderate shade. It does not require pruning to maintain its shape, although it tolerates heavy pruning several inches above the ground for rejuvenation. Though it does have a suckering nature, it is not considered invasive. Makes a great companion plant to witch hazels and hydrangea. Also works well as a background for perennial and annual flower beds. Attracts butterflies. Yellow fall color. Native plant.
