The red Buckeye is one of my favorite trees. The blossoms are spectacular.
Red Buckeye seeds with leaf.
Ready to bloom
In bloom - early May
I brought my plants from Ga. to my home here in Rock Hill, SC. My only problem is how long to leave the buckeyes maturing on the bush before the squirrels get them.

Our Buckeye is doing well set back from a bog area with only dappled morning sun.
The flowers can be an astounding red, although seedling Aesculus pavia can vary considerably in this regard.
Emerging foliage on any Buckeye is worthy of observation. A. pavia is no exception.
