Aesculus parviflora (Bottlebrush Buckeye)

Large, upright feathery plumes of white flower clusters are borne atop the rich, dark green leaves. This diminutive member of the horsechestnut family is a dramatic addition to the late summer landscape. Fall foliage is yellowish-bronze. Broad-rounded habit lends itself to tremendous mass plantings and its ability to thrive in sun or shade makes it a winning choice.
