Why Dwarf Red Buckeye Trees?

Aside from its lovely early spring foliage and excellent color contrast, the Red Dwarf Buckeye Tree is known for its versatility. It's a hardy variety that works well as either a tree or a shrub, depending on your landscape needs. 

No matter how you grow it, it brightens almost any location. Requiring almost zero maintenance, the Buckeye won't have you toiling in your garden. It effortlessly grows its trademark 5-part green leaves that flourish throughout the summer. Preceding them in the spring are its signature scarlet panicles of blossoms and ornamental fruit that attract wildlife, including hummingbirds and butterflies. It will even flower when planted in shade!

The Red Buckeye is an important native tree for wild and wildlife gardens. It merges beauty and hassle-free upkeep, all in one iconic little package.

I’ve received my two trees and am very pleased with the speed in which they arrived. They both look pretty healthy.

Red Buckeye Tree

I am so very pleased with my tree purchase. I got her in the ground within four days of arrival. She is already sprouting new growth. I have never gotten a big tree before. Great choice and good price. Thank you

Red Dwarf Buckeye Trees

I recently purchased three Dwarf Buckeyes. I purchased 2 of the 5-6 ft trees and 1 of the 3-4 ft tall tree. What I didn’t realize is when you buy the larger trees, the lower branches are cut off so I think these trees are intended to grow into a much taller tree. If you’re looking to use the tree more as smaller shrub then order the smaller tree and leave the lower branches. When they arrived they appeared to be a little wilted and had some broken branches but otherwise in good shape. I got them planted the same day. We’ve have a couple of days of cold weather since I planted them but they seem to be hanging in there. Hopefully they bounce back. Of note, as a complimentary gift I was also supposed to receive a “Free” Kousa Dogwood tree but it was not included and has not arrived. I also ordered “Root Rocket” fertilizer with my order but this was not included either. I followed up with an email to the company but no one has responded. I would’ve given 5 Stars except for the above mentioned omissions. Hopefully the trees will do okay.
