Aesculus pavia

Common Name: Red Buckeye

To lump this distinguished small tree with more coarse horsechestnuts is inappropriate, as it has tremendous ornamental appeal. Shiny, scorch-free foliage and bright red spring flowers command attention. Tolerates heat well, stays small, and blooms freely even in shade. Among Aesculus this one is an aristocrat that merits far wider use in the trade. Truly a "Wow!" plant.
