Buckeye are any of various North American vegetation or shrubs of the type Aesculus, encompassing palmate amalgam, opposite leaves, upright panicles of white to red or yellow flowers, and big shiny seeds with a large add-on disfigurement. All parts of the buckeye plant are toxic. Buckeye in other terms is called the spiny or smooth fruit. A buckeye plant has large shiny brown seeds inside the fruit.

Buckeye has altogether about 13 trees and shrubs of the kind Aesculus (family Hippocastanaceae), local to or found normally in North America, southeastern Europe, and eastern Asia. The name buckeye refers to the similarity of the nut, which has a pastel scrap on a shiny red floor, to the eye of a deer. Buckeyes are appreciated as decorative trees for their fine-looking candelabra-like flower crowd together. Both the youthful plant and the nuts are toxic.

Among the most distinguished is the Ohio buckeye (A. glabra), also labelled as fetid buckeye and American horse chestnut, with brushwood and leaves that give way an obnoxious smell when flattened.
