    Aesculus pavia

    The Red Buckeye is named for its striking showy 5" red upright flower panicles, which appear on the ends of its branches in May. Aesculus pavia's foliage is dark green in summer, turning to yellow in early fall. It produces the lustrous brown chestnuts that we all loved as children and squirrels go crazy for them. It can be grown as a very large wide shrub or as a small slow growing tree.

    PRN Preferred:  We have selected for cleaner foliage and showier flowers.

    Aesculus pavia Splendens

    We grow our own selection of Red Buckeye, selected by us from a field of mature trees at Princeton Nurseries.  The characteristics that guided our choices were clean, disease-free foliage, very dark showy 5" upright panicles in May, and a strong tree-form habit.  We propagate our selection 'Splendens' from the seed of the five trees we moved to Pleasant Run Nursery.  The resulting plants have the outstanding qualities of their parents, and we grow them as tree-form.  Aesculus pavia 'Splendens' makes a tough beautiful small tree. Besides the flower display and the attractive dark green summer foliage, the fall color is a clean yellow and the brown chestnuts feed the wildlife.

Conn.  Low Scape® 'Mound' performs as a groundcover instead of an upright shrub, so it works well as an erosion control plant as well as an edger.  The green spring foliage is topped by lots of attractive white racemes.  The showy flowers are followed by shiny black fruit in late summer, providing important food for wildlife.  The fall color is a deep red, persisting for several weeks.

    'Viking' Black Chokeberry has glossy dark green leaves which turn a striking red in fall. The white, spring flowers are followed by large purplish black fruit, which birds love (and they are full of anti-oxidants).

Dr. Mark Brand of Connecticut found this native beauty.
