A well-known hardy ornamental deciduous tree with showy flowers and compound leaves, well adapted for single specimens on large lawns. It does well in any good deep soil protected from the harsh wind.

There are several fine species including .Aesculus hippocas-tanum (the common European variety), Aesculus Califomica (the common Buckeye), Aesculus glabra (the Ohio Buckeye) and a red-flowering variety named Aesculus camea; all are handsome and very desirable.

Plant the seeds, as soon as gathered, one inch deep in nursery rows one foot apart; replant them in their permanent situations when they are four feet in height.
