    There has been at least one vouchered site reported for Aesculus californica in Jackson County, Oregon (11 June 2004), about 27 miles north of the OR-CA border.

    Thanks Rick, I had wondered if that would be the case, since it appears in Siskiyou County in California.

    Are these trees summer-deciduous if grown in British Columbia, or only in California? Is anyone growing one?

    Great photo …especially the “arrangement”. this one’s a favorite for sure, and of a favorite tree too.

    Beautiful! I’m from Ohio and we have THE Buckeye Tree as our own, but it is nothing like your photo. Ohio State Buckeyes. so I would imagine that this is a relative to our Buckeye Tree, which I don’t know the proper botany name for it. Are the nuts similair to Ohio’s, brown with a tan top? and poisonous.

    Susie,
    Aesculus glabra is the scientific name fo the Ohio buckeye. The nut of the pictured species tends to be larger but otherwise similar.
