Yellow Buckeye is a showy flowering deciduous tree with an oblong crown and dark green 5 toothed palmate leaves that turn yellow-orange in fall.  Long erect panicles of airy yellow flowers with red anthers bloom in mid-spring and give way to glossy, inedible nuts (buckeyes).  Flowers best in rich, moist soils.  Drought intolerant, particularly in youth.

Aesculus octandra, or sometimes known as Aesculus flava, is a host to moths, provides nectar for bees, and is one of the earliest flower providers for hummingbirds

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
