Rhoiptelea chiliantha NV 032 Rhoiptelea chiliantha NV 032

Horsetail Tree.  Very rare monotypic genus containing just this single species in the Juglandaceae or Walnut family.  Pinnate leaves on a tree 25'-60' tall with drooping many-stranded inflorescence of insignificant flowers followed by tan winged nutlets.  This is a reintroduction of sorts to North America as it is known from fossil records from the Cretaceous Period.  Distribution of these young plants is an important conservation strategy.  Hardiness unknown.
