Aesculus pavia (Red Buckeye) is a small understory tree native to the American southeast that is known for its vivid red tubular flowers which are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Best grown in slightly acidic, moist, fertile soil in part-shade, red buckeye typically grows 12-15' tall. Red buckeye makes for a unique specimen tree, and though Aesculus pavia prefers moist soil, it can tolerate occasionally wetter conditions, which makes it a great addition for part-shade rain gardens, as well as screens or hedges in wetter shaded areas.
Note: Although it's a very popular choice for pollinators, care should be taken with planting location of Aesculus pavia, as plant parts and seeds are toxic to humans and other mammals.
