This attractive large shrub is native to the southeastern United States, but proves to have good cold hardiness to our region. Deep green, palmate leaves turn golden-yellow in the fall. Large spikes of creamy-white flowers bloom in the summer when other shrubs are not flowering. Shiny brown nuts are not edible. A very shade-tolerant shrub, Bottlebrush buckeye gives a natural look to the landscape. It has some tendancy to sucker, but to a lesser extent.
