List of Trees 31-60 Red Buckeye

Hesculus pavia L.

Family: Hippocastanaceae

Red Buckeye is a small native tree, popular for its springtime display of three to six-inch-long, red flowers which are quite attractive to hummingbirds. These blooms are followed by flat, round capsules which contain bitter and poisonous seeds. The large, dark green, palmate leaves usually offer no great color change in fall and often drop as early as late September.
