  • Appearance: Ohio buckeye is a deciduous tree that typically grows between 20 and 50 feet tall. It has a rounded crown and distinctive palmately compound leaves composed of five to seven leaflets. The leaves turn vibrant shades of yellow, orange, and red in the fall. The tree produces showy, yellowish-green flowers in the spring, followed by fruit capsules with glossy brown seeds.

  • Habitat and Range: Ohio buckeye is native to the eastern and central United States, particularly in the Ohio Valley region, from which it gets its common name. It is commonly found in moist, well-drained soils of forests, woodlands, and riverbanks. It is known for its adaptability to a range of soil conditions.
  • Cultural Significance: Ohio buckeye holds cultural significance, particularly in Ohio, where it is the state tree. It is also the namesake of The Ohio State University's athletic teams, the Buckeyes. The tree's distinctive nuts, resembling buck's eyes, have been used in various traditional practices, such as carried as good luck charms or strung as necklaces.

  • Wildlife Value: Ohio buckeye provides important habitat and food for wildlife. The flowers attract bees and other pollinators, while the fruit capsules contain seeds that are consumed by squirrels, chipmunks, and birds. However, it's important to note that the seeds are toxic to humans and most animals if ingested.

  • Wood and Uses: The wood of Ohio buckeye is lightweight, soft, and not particularly durable, making it less suitable for commercial applications. However, the tree is valued for its ornamental qualities in landscaping due to its attractive foliage, showy flowers, and fall color. Additionally, the nuts, although toxic, are sometimes used for crafts and decorative purposes.

  • Ohio buckeye is a beloved tree known for its cultural significance, attractive foliage, and ecological contributions. While it provides habitat and food for wildlife, caution should be exercised with the toxic nature of its seeds, which should not be ingested.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
