Texas Buckeye

The Texas Buckeye is a native tree classified as a small multi-trunked tree or large shrub. It features distinctive, large palmate leaves and white-to-yellow spring blooms that grow in large clusters. The large, spiny fruit appears in summer and produces large, shiny black seeds.

Plants typically grow to 35-40 feet tall and about 35 feet wide in a partial sun location. Texas Buckeye is prone to losing foliage in summertime, especially if spring weather has encouraged fungal diseases. They are very adaptable to different soils, including our heavier clay soil in the DFW area, though they may grow smaller.

It is thought that most or all parts of the Texas Buckeye are toxic if consumed. Only remove them if you’d like to try growing one from seed. If so, collect seeds as soon as they drop in the fall and replant in desired location. If you have wooded areas on your property, ravines or shaded hillsides, Texas Buckeye makes a good native understory tree.
