About This Plant

Partial shade. Deciduous with palmate leaves distinguished from Red Buckeye by having 7 to 11 leaflets. Creamy yellow flower clusters appear in spring. It prefers riparian environments. On deeper Blackland soils, buckeye can grow to 40 ft or more, but around San Antonio, count on a smaller size. The leaves drop early.

Maintenance

Pruning and seed collection.
