This is an exceptional trouble free centerpiece for any landscape with room to show it off.

The Bottlebrush Buckeye is a large slow growing shrub native to the southern United States. It is quite shade tolerant though partial sun will bring more flower spikes.

The Bottlebrush Buckeye is hardy in zones 4 to 8 (possibly 9) and averages 8′ to 12′ in height. It can spead by root suckers but these are easy to keep in check by pruning or mowing.  Pruning is only necessary if shaping is required. Removing inconvenient crossing branches is advised. The Bottlebrush is not a messy tree. The seeds, Buckeyes, are poisonous and

should be kept away from children. They can easily be removed after the bloom is over as they tend to form at the end of the flower spikes.
