Description

Bottlebrush Buckeye

 
Bottlebrush Buckeye is a 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. This shrub is very hardy and will grow well in shade or sun. 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. 
 
Bottlebrush buckeye is a handsome shrub that has memorable long fluffy white flower clusters in early July. It is useful as an understory planting in woodland gardens, as a specimen plant, or in a shrub border. The wonderful, coarse-textured, dark green compound leaves turn rich buttery yellow in the fall. This is a large shrub that tends to sucker and, over time, will grow twice as broad as it is high, so it should only be used in large-scale plantings. Also known as Aesculus macrostachya. People often expect the prettiest plants to be a pain to grow, but that certainly isn't the case with the bottlebrush. This plant needs moist, well-drained soil and partial to full shade, and that is it. 
Native to the southeast but adapted to a much larger area, bottlebrush buckeye (Aesculus parviflora) gets its name from showy, white, summer blooms that resemble bottlebrushes and its dark, shiny, inedible seeds that remind you of chestnuts or buckeyes. In the wild, you usually find it growing in the shady forest understory. The shrub slowly suckers, but not aggressively, forming colonies up to 12 feet tall.
