‘Autumn Splendor’ buckeye has a low, rounded canopy with showy, yellow-green flowers that emerge mid-spring. Fruit appears after flowering, which provides food for wildlife. The dark green leaves are scorch resistant and turn orange to maroon in the fall. This attractive tree prefers moist well-drained soil and can tolerate road salt. It is best planted in a yard without young children, dogs or livestock because the plant parts can be toxic if ingested. Full sun to partial shade.
