Plant Collection

yellow buckeye
Aesculus flava

Catalogue No. 1932-0068*A
Height: 90 feet
Spread: 60 feet
DBH: 49.3 inches

Native to eastern North America. Look for this buckeye in the fall when its yellow-orange fall color can be seen from throughout the Arboretum. Wonderful flaky bark, yellow flower clusters, and fantastic fall color make this species a useful native alternative to the disease-prone horsechestnut. Our yellow buckeye has fully recovered from being badly damaged in the 1991 tornado. It stands tall along the East Brook and can be seen from many vantages throughout the garden.
