Learn more about bottlebrush buckeye

Bottlebrush buckeye is actually a type of bushy horse chestnut tree that has more or less the same leaf and flower characteristics as its larger cousin.

It thus makes for easy growing and care and will fit just as well in a shrub bed as it will as a standalone.
If in a shrub bed, do provide for sufficient space because once mature it can grow wider across than 25 feet (8 meters)!
