    Thank you. I’ve got a pocketful of buckeyes but never noticed the bloom.

    Mine start blooming at shin high (2 foot), also… They eventually get 6+ feet high, and just as wide…

    aesculus pavia or red buckeye. A delightful native shrub… There is also a yellow variety in the area, and… Apparently they can cross for a part yellow part red bloom. I posted examples of the yellow and the red in my personal garden blog on the 9th… Don’t have the cross at my house… yet… http://gardens-in-the-sand.blogspot.com/2013/04/it-must-be-spring.html

    Only 2ft high? Is that really right or does it look like it might get larger? Apart from that it looks like Red Buckeye (Aesculus pavia [ http://www.photosbotanical.com/img955.htm ]).
