Aesculus glabra

Ohio Buckeye

Ohio Buckeye is a small to medium, or occasionally large deciduous tree native to the mid-western U.S.  It is the tree which gives Ohio the name of the "Buckeye State".  The rather large leaves are typical of this genus with five palmately arranged leaflets which are bright green turning to yellow or orange in fall.  Flowers are greenish yellow and somewhat hidden by the foliage.  Large brown inedible nuts (buckeyes) are shed from spiny husks in fall.  The tree is perhaps too "messy" for small residential landscapes but can make a handsome specimen in park-like settings with good soils.
