Ohio Buckeye

Aesculus glabra

The leaves of the Ohio Buckeye go through many color changes. They begin as bright green turning dark green in summer and then yellow and at times orange-red in the fall. Perfectly shaped greenish-yellow flowers bloom around mid-May. This Buckeye’s dark brown fruit is highly recognizable due to its prickly outer shell. Because of this fruit, street planting of the Ohio Buckeye is limited.
