Jefferson-documented

This lovely North American native was introduced into Europe by 1711. In 1798 Thomas Jefferson included this tree in a box of plants sent from Philadelphia to his son-in-law Thomas Mann Randolph. Jefferson intended it to be planted in the upper grove amid his arboretum of catalpas, wild crab apples, horse chestnuts, and Pride of China (Chinaberry) trees. The Philadelphia nursery of John Bartram & Son offered Red Buckeye by the late eighteenth century.
