Aesculus parviflora, also called bottlebrush buckeye, is a multi-stemmed shrub or small understory tree with outstanding summer appeal. Producing compound frond of tropical looking leaves in the early spring, bottlebrush buckeye starts putting on its real show in  early months of summer, attracting butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators with huge, white bottlebrush spikes of flowers.

Typically growing to 6-12′ tall and wide in a variety of light conditions from full sun to full shade and a wide range of soil conditions, bottlebrush buckeye has long-lasting foliage and makes for an attractive seasonal screen or naturalized understory planting. In autumn, deep green foliage turns to shades of lime green and rusty yellow before leaves begin to fall.

 Note: Although it's a very popular choice for pollinators, care should be taken with choosing a good planting location for Aesculus parviflora, as plant parts and seeds are toxic to humans and other mammals.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
