Aesculus parviflora (Hippocastanaceae)
(ESS-kew-lus par-vi-FLOOR-a)
Bottlebrush Buckeye

A true aristocrat among native Southeastern woody plants, with 1-1.5' snowy white bloom spikes that catch the eye from afar. An amazing midsummer treat, complemented by wonderful foliage leaves emerge a rich bronze, change to a glossy dark green at bloom time, and turn bright yellow in fall. A colonizing habit makes Bottlebrush Buckeye perfect for a woodland understory or the forest edge.
