Info

Less susceptible to leaf scorch than other Buckeyes so can take full sun. With 6" erect panicles of creamy yellow flowers in late spring, early summer this is a knockout when mature (and even long before)! It's the largest of the Buckeyes and abundant in the Great Smokey Mountains. One of the first trees to leaf out in spring and makes a great shade tree.
