Buckeye image by Griffen Bryant


Aesculus Glabra, also known as the Buckeye, or “Hetuck” by Native Americans. The Buckeye, a deciduous tree, could grow to heights of eighty feet. It develops a gray -green layering of thick rough bark.

Flowering transparent yellow peddles. Reddish orange colors design the middle of flowers. Long cloudy colored filaments jut out from the center. Sat on top, bright orange anthers. Buckeyes produce a spine encased chocolate colored nut like seed. All surrounded by foliage of a traditional green.

There is a balance to its enticing appearance. Aesculus Glabra contains, in some cases fatal, toxins.
