Bottlebrush Buckeye

Arbor Walk #89

Bottlebrush Buckeye is not native to Missouri but is very adaptable to the St. Louis Region. It is a multiple stem understory small tree or large shrub which colonizes by suckering. It flowers in late Spring with 8″ to 12″ long bottlebrush shaped inflorescences containing hundreds of small white flowers. It occasionally produces 1″ to 3″ long pear shaped, light brown capsules which contain one or more light brown seeds. Leaves turn a butter yellow color in the Fall.
