According to Wikipedia Aesculus parviflora, the bottlebrush buckeye, is a species of suckering deciduous shrub in the Sapindaceae family. It is also called dwarf horse chestnut in recognition of its resemblance to its more famous relative Aesculus. hippocastanum. The species is native to open woodlands of the southeastern United States (primarily Alabama with additional populations in Georgia). It is apparently naturalized in scattered locations in North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
