Aesculus flava x pavia

Sweet Buckeye, Yellow Buckeye

Sweet Buckeye (Aesculus flava x pavia) is a deciduous tree. Also known as Yellow Buckeye, it blooms in spring with small yellow and yellow-green flowers followed by small round fruits. The fruit is toxic, but can be made edible through a leaching process. This broadleaf North American native grows best in full sun and moist, sandy or loamy soil, eventually reaching as tall as 75 feet with a 35 foot spread. Sweet Buckeye is a popular landscaping choice for parks and other urban areas.
