Plant as a Shrub or Train into a Compact Tree!

Dwarf Red Buckeye has just what the Gardener ordered:

  • Lovely early spring foliage
  • Hardy plant that works well as either a tree or shrub
  • Excellent color contrast great for sunny planting sites

A Small Tree that will Dwarf all others

For eye-catching, visual beauty, look no further than the Dwarf Red Buckeye. Small enough to plant as a shrub, or large enough to train into a compact tree, this colorful stunner can grow to heights of 20 feet in the proper conditions or can be shaped into an ornamental shrub that will brighten any location. Requiring almost zero maintenance, the Buckeye won't have you toiling in your garden, only out for a look to enjoy its beauty.

Buckeye will turn your landscape into a Botanical Garden

No matter what design you favor for your garden or landscape, you'll enjoy the Buckeye's trademark 5-part green leaves that flourish throughout the summer. Preceding them in the spring are the scarlet panicles of blossoms that will attract a plethora of wildlife including hummingbirds and butterflies. A versatile favorite, the Red Buckeye will add warmth and charm whether you plant it beside your patio or along the edge of your garden.

Meh.. Still waiting on bloom after planting
Tree arrived in an open root sack. I planted it the next day inn Feb with the root rocket fertilizer. It was a solid 4 foot tap after planted. It hasn't grown or bloomed as of late April. I'm concerned about it but sometimes you just have to wait and see what happens after a full growing season.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Red Dwarf Buckeye Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Red Dwarf Buckeye Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Red Dwarf Buckeye Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Red Dwarf Buckeye Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Our electric utility provides a planting guide that lists this plant as suitable for planting near overhead power lines.

I am a birdwatcher who has been amazed by the way the dwarf red buckeye draws the hummers and orioles. I could sit for hours and watch the birds drink from the red blossoms. The Magee Marsh Wildlife area on Lake Erie has a lovely specimen. I have wanted one every since I first saw it.

Choose this small bush/tree as liked size, has flowers for hummingbirds and bees, and I was born in Ohio - so "Buckeye" is very appropriate.

Does this have nuts or buckeyes?
Prexie67 on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Should have Buckeyes but too young to tell.
Is this tree deer resistant?
Candace W on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are rarely damaged by deer. Keep in mind that if they get hungry enough they will eat anything.
