Aesculus pavia no.2

Red Buckeye
Aesculus pavia
(Red Buckeye)
Grows 15-20 feet high and wide.  Hardy from zones 4-8.  Native from Virginia to Florida and west to Texas.  (It has survived nearly eight years in my zone 5b Massachusetts garden.)  Attracts hummingbirds.  My kids love to collect the many seeds (as do I).  My attempt at propagating it last year failed, but I’m going to give it another try.
