Can anyone help with this flower, growing in Northwest Louisiana?
thanks in advance
Aesculus pavia, Red Buckeye...?
My photo attachment didn't get posted before. Any help with this flower in Louisiana? Thanks again
Aesculus pavia.... Common name red buckeye or firecracker plant,
Totally agree with Silver surfer and can I say what an amazing photo. Fantastic..
Known as red horse-chestnut here in Southern England. Used to be many where I lived as a child, but not so many now. Quite a spectacular tree when in flower amongst all the greens.
Great photo BTW.
Michael F will correct me if I am wrong but in UK the American Aesculus pavia....buckeyes are very rare.
The red flowered tree here is Aesculus x carnea briotii.
aesculus x carnea briotii - Google Search
Totally agree Silver surfer, I last remember seeing one in the late 50's at a place called Southampton Common. It did stand out, hence why I remember it.
Yep - Tlairmore's pic is Red Buckeye Aesculus pavia; the tree called Red Horse-chestnut (Aesculus × carnea) in UK is a hybrid between this and [Common] Horse-chestnut A. hippocastanum.
