Our Buckeye shrub developed its first buckeyes this year. It was a nice surprise to go out there and find them on the ground. I had been watching the pod to see when they might drop. The buckeyes are about the same size as the tree buckeyes but the "eye" on the seed is smaller and they are a few shades lighter in color. If you want a tropical look in your northern garden this shrub will give you that feel.
