California Buckeye

Aesculus californica

California buckeye (Aesculus californica). Deciduous shrub/tree.

Wonderful bark, impressive flowers and decorative shiny round seed pods (called buckeyes or horse chestnuts) make this a good choice for larger gardens, especially with rock outcroppings where the roots can grow around and over the rocks as the plants mature.
