Introducing the Aesculus glabra 'Arguta' - also known as the Arguta Ohio Buckeye, Texas Buckeye, or Western Buckeye. This species is the state tree of Ohio, and while it is native to the Midwestern and Great Plains regions of the United States, it can also thrive in eastern and southeastern areas of England with a continental climate. The tree prefers deep loamy well-drained soil, and its growth rate is moderate in the wild, living up to 100 years. While hardy when dormant, new growth can be damaged by late spring frosts. Crushed twigs, bark, flowers and leaves emit a foul odor. The Aesculus genus transplants easily and is perfect for conservation or ornamental purposes. As a medium-sized deciduous tree growing up to 25 meters tall, it features palmately compound leaves, yellow-green flowers in spring, and spiny capsules with nut-like seeds in the fall. Beware, the fruits contain tannic acid and are poisonous to cattle but often eaten by squirrels and badgers. Get yourself an Aesculus glabra 'Arguta' for a stunning addition to your garden!
