Hummingbirds love red buckeye trees!

Red Buckeye

Look for Ft. McNair and Briotti buckeyes (Aesculus pavia) at your garden center. Both are medium sized trees with long lasting red flowers in the spring that attract pollinators. Buckeyes do best with morning sun with some shelter from the afternoon sun. Also called horse chestnut. Matures 10-20′. Zone 4-8, part shade.
