Bottlebrush Buckeye

 
With its coarse-textured, dark green leaves that turn sunshine yellow in the fall and massive horizontal spread, the Bottle Brush Buckeye is one of the best plants for shrub borders. The bush also sprouts white, pyramid-shaped flowers in early July that resemble bottle brushes; hence the name. The bottlebrush is best used in the more significant landscape as the plant needs room to spread. A deciduous, perennial shrub native to the Northeastern United States, it attracts butterflies but doesn’t usually have issues with insect infestation or disease. Old wives’ tales resound on the seeds as poisonous and unfit for consumption yet wild animals, squirrels, for example, do ingest the seeds of the bush regularly. Buckeyes are also remarkably easy to plant. In mid-September, the seeds will start to drop and if you can get a hold of one, plant it. By the same time next year, you’ll already have a new bush added to the row.
