Buckeyes are beautiful native trees but this one is special because of its brilliant red fall color. Spring brings large white panicles of blooms that are touched with red and yellow. The foliage shows good disease resistance to scorch and leaf blotch. Autumn Splendor was named for its vivid maroon-red fall color. Prefers moist soil and full sun for best flower production.
