Looking for a stunning deciduous tree for your garden or landscape? Consider the Yellow Buckeye (Aesculus octandra - synonym flava), native to the Ohio Valley and Appalachian Mountains. Standing tall at 90-110 ft tall, it boasts greenish yellow flowers in May and rich dark green leaves that turn yellow to pumpkin-orange come fall. What's more, it's less prone to disease than other species, making it a trouble-free choice for the discerning gardener. Plus, its upright-oval habit and slight spreading outline make it a showstopper in any setting. While the Yellow Buckeye's wood is commonly used for cheap furniture and various woodenware, it's also a great choice as an ornamental tree and for its shade. Keep in mind that the fruit is poisonous to humans, but it's often a favorite snack for squirrels. Add the Yellow Buckeye to your outdoor collection today for a touch of nature's beauty.
