Red Buckeye in bloom

Catherine Boston

One of the most eye-catching plants in the Education Building Garden right now is the Red Buckeye, Aesculus pavia.  This tree is in full bloom right now with its tall panicles of red blooms that will attract hummingbirds and bees.  The buckeye gets its name from the design of its seeds which are chestnut brown with a white spot and supposed to resemble the eye of a deer.  To learn more about the Red Buckeye and other plants around the Education Building, you can take our virtual tour through this link.   Or scan the QR code on the message board by the door to the Education Building and take our virtual tour in person.
