Bumald Bladdernut.  The species is named for 17th century Italian botanist Ovidio Montalbano who used the pen name Johannus Bumaldus when publishing.  Curious bit of phytoesoterica.  A smaller deciduous shrub with trifoliate leaves and panicles of white fragrant flowers followed by small bladders holding two shiny nut-like seeds which would make lovely beads.  A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy offering.  Just a few of these from wild-collected seed.
