California buckeye forms a multitrunked small tree. The specimen where we collected our seed is only 12 ft. tall with a similar spread. In the summer, numerous lightly blushed white flowers form into thick taper-like panicles. Their sweet fragrance draws not only human admirers but also our friends the bees. The 5-part palmate leaves measure 12 inches long with stem and about 10 inches across at their widest. In the autumn, large, glossy, hard-coated nuts litter the ground. These are a bounty to wildlife.
