Growing at Gratus...

Aesculus glabra, or Ohio Buckeye, in the horse chestnut family of flowering, deciduous trees, native to temperate North America.  Aesculus in Latin means edible acorn, and glabra means smooth or hairless, referring to the outside fruit cover. Although it looks like a chestnut, it is moderately toxic and should not be eaten. Lovely in your fall arrangement or wreaths.
