Staphylea holocarpa H2MD 074
Chinese Bladdernut. A grand species from Hubei where this grew on a high bank arching out over a tumbling whitewater stream with its inflated seed pots containing burnished brown nutlets. The showy flowers are in clusters looking somewhat like the love child of a Throes of Spring one night stand between Deutzia and Stryrax. Likely pink buds opening to white, there is also a pink forrn but these wildlings have not yet flowered. Can take full sun but best not in drying or freezing winds and truly shines in a sheltered position such as woodland edge.
