Description: These Texas yellow buckeye were grown from seed collected from a stand of small trees growing on a hill side in Uvalde County near the Frio River. It's very drought tolerant once established. Flowers are similar to the red buckeye but smaller and yellow instead of red. Expect only a few inches of growth per year.
